★★★★★★★★★ We designed and created unique frame. Hand forged heavy frame made of old rusty iron from the hull of over a century old war ship!! Frame presents fantastic outline of the imaginary city, including streets, buildings ... it really gives a majestic 3-D feeling of the city when looking at the one of a kind frame. Canvas has gently distorted edges, perfectly matching with a story of the hand forged frame full of character. It is heirloom quality and makes a great conversation starter.
