Illuminated Manuscript- Corinthians
"Love is the most excellent way... Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres, love never fails...~ And now these three remain; faith, hope, & love. But the greatest of these is Love."
About the Artist:
The artist, Kevin Dillon’s work features the lost art of hand lettered Illuminated Manuscripts.
Kevin uses the same mediaeval techniques used by the Irish monks that decorated the, “Book of Kells”. Using mortal & pestle, Kevin crushes semi-precious stones, uses a goose quill pen and meticulously applies the calligraphy and color by hand to calf skin vellum. The final illumination is achieved using 24K gold leaf. To prints of his originals, the artist seals each with a stylized design of his initials and imprints them in a molten charred wax at the bottom. Each piece is unique piece of artwork to treasure for years to come. Each arrives double matted and the artist’s story on the back.
8" Wide & 10" High Double Matted and Artist Sealed.
