DESCRIPTION

Our metal prints are thin, lightweight and durable 1/16" aluminum sheet canvas. The high gloss finish enhances color and produces sharp image details. Each sheet has a 3/4" wooden frame attached to the back to offset from the wall. Prints have a wire or sawtooth hanger, depending on size selected.

ABOUT THE ART

The second in my "inspired by Radiohead" series. Magpies are considered unlucky in some cultures, British especially. Superstitious people say you should salute a single magpie, other say "Good Morning Mr Magpie". Magpies are also said to be home breakers and thieves. Often breaking open eggs in other nests, and stealing shiny things.

A bird that has to be addressed Mr, must be seen as a gentleman of sorts. So I wanted to give this an old-fashioned needlecraft feel, the Magpie is depicted as some sort of well-to-do villain.
