'Moth Mandala'

          This is my print called 'Moth Mandala' currently on exhibition at Il Bisonte in Florence Italy.
I carved 3 different sizes of the moths, although I ended up using only the 2 smaller ones. The hardest part was dividing the paper up mathematically! The artists were supplied with 7 sheets of  the printing paper (50 cm x 70 cm), but only 5 were required. Even allowing for 2 mistake copies, it was nerve wracking to say the least trying to get 5 copies as perfect as possible.

It's lovely and I can imagine the work that went into it all as you say the mathematics as well. Never my strong point.:)

Nor mine Mags, but I managed with a dressmaking set square, a protractor and plenty of checking and re-checking!
