This print represents an olive tree, typical of my homeland, Puglia, in southern Italy. It as being considered the plant symbol of the Mediterranean for excellence. It is realized with the technique of linogravure etching.
The linoleography is an artistic printing technique of images and graphics on paper, cardboard or cloth by the use of a matrix obtained for engraving on linoleum. The term "linocut" comes from the name of the media (linoleum) and from the greek "grapho" (write).
Each linocut print is printed to order.Matrix is totaly carved by hand by myself with original illustration . Each print one comes out a little different due to handmade printing process. 
This print will be sandwiched in cardboard which is tucked into a bubble mailer for safe transport.
