Luna Woman

Item Number: 648

Regular price $15.25 Sale

A customer from Illinois suggested a nude woman with Luna moth wings. Head up, chest out, arms down and slightly back. I looked at an insect field guide to get the Luna moth wings just right, and you'll notice the woman's earrings are fashioned after Luna moth antennae. The figure is from memory, and the leaf she is on is Sweet Gum, a favorite food of the Luna moth caterpillar.

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).

Mount Type:Maple hardwood block indexed in black and finished with linseed oil. Block Width:2 inches Block Length:4.25 inches Block Thickness:3/4 inch Image Size:Approximately 1/4 inch less than block size
