Painting in mixed media on plaster, year 2015, Italy Rome, in good condition, dimensions W30xH25x5cm thickness

Fresco technique with dry finish on a light support
Dimensions W30xH25x5cm thickness, weight approximately 0.5 kg Provided with a loop with brass wire on the back, for easy hanging on the wall.
This mixed media fresco depicts a detail of a Roman mosaic from the 1st century BC with the masks of tragedy and comedy.

The materials used are the same used in ancient times (sand and lime for the mortar, and pigments for the colour shades).
The painting is in good condition, the abrasions on the colours are on purpose to make it look antique and the perimeter is deliberately irregular , exposing the underlying layer, using the same protective technique used by art conservators when they have to remove a painting from the original wall to store it in a museum.

The item will be carefully packed with bubble wrap sheets, inside a protective wooden crate.
