“Raphael Panel”

The inspiration for this panel is from Raphael's oil painting of the "Sistine Madonna" circa 1513. The Virgin and Child are framed by Saints Sixtus and Barbara. Many of us will recognize the two putti (or cherubs), at the base of the design, often seen reproduced in popular culture. For this piece, I have gathered the subjects closer together to fill the composition and added the Gothic framing. The scrimshaw is created on elephant ivory that is framed in ebony and wrapped in aged copper.
