Copper Repousse Head Of Christ on Panel
Copper Repoussé Head of Christ.
Repousse is an ancient method of decorating metals in which parts of the design are raised in relief from the back or the inside of the metal by means of hammers and punches; definition and detail can then be added from the front by chasing or engraving. This beautiful early piece is enhanced by the hand textured panel that it’s mounted on. Simple hanger on the back side.
