Chintamani Statement Framed Print
This archival print is float-mounted on a natural linen, which provides a 1" border between the print and frame. The piece is offered in our lucite frame. The print itself is subtly blind embossed with our monogram in the bottom right hand corner. The frame is equipped with wire to be hung either vertically or horizontally.
Surface gloss can be maintained by using a soft cloth and specialty plastic cleaner or polish, following cleaning fluid container instructions.
Begin by gently blowing away any loose dust or dirt from the lucite surface. Using a mild soap solution or a plastic cleaner and a non-abrasive lint-free cloth, wipe the surface using light pressure. To remove grease, oil, or tar deposits use hexane or kerosene followed by a soap solution.
Fine scratches may be removed by hand polishing with a plastic polish scratch remover. Remove all residue and polish with a soft cloth.
All orders placed after 2 PM PT will be processed on the next business day.
This St. Frank archival print depicts a vintage textile created in Turkey and reveals a traditional Turkish design, known as the chintamani - three dots placed over two curved lines. This iconic motif is thought to originate from Buddhist philosophy and represent a wish-granting jewel. Repeated patterns such as these are characteristic of the decorative textiles found along the Silk Road. The original textile was created with a crochet technique and is made from silk thread on a silk-cotton blend backing.
