This idea began years ago, and she started out having many arms. I have rough sketches of her with six arms and eight arms, each one holding a different coffee-related object. In the end I went with a simpler concept, just two arms and three cups of espresso. The exotic looking nude woman sits on a saucer, with an overhead view of a cup of coffee behind. Coffee plants sprout up around the figure and a coffee plant blossom adorns her dark hair. The little hat she wears resembles a bfrench pressb, the preferred coffee apparatus at our house.
This is a fine art rubber stamp designed and made by Steven Vander Meer in Humboldt County, California. The die is deeply etched natural red vulcanized rubber, which is hand trimmed and adhered to red sponge cushion (the good kind, not the self-adhesive kind). The cushion is also trimmed by hand and then mounted to a smoothly sanded and oiled Maple block, with a clear black index printed on the top. The MEER IMAGE name is hot iron branded onto the end-grain of the block, and the SVM personal signature chop is added to the top of the block in red ink (space permitting).
