This stunning monochrome alligator artwork is crafted using patchwork and intricate thread work. On top of the lustrous black raw silk background, patchwork is done using a pearl white-colored rich raw silk fabric, whose texture adds to the scaly look of this gorgeous animal. Details within the artwork such as Sobek's eyes, scales, and outlines are all done in thread - entirely by hand - to create this life-sized artwork. It is then canvas framed using a hand-crafted solid pine wood frame. The back of the framed artwork is finished with a protective backing, which will help protect and preserve this textile art. Our artisans put in over 90 hours of meticulous work to craft this incredible framed wall art .
Eclectic Glam is probably the most difficult of the glam styles to pull off because it takes a practiced eye to make sure the space remains visually balanced. The easiest way to pull this style off is to start with a neutral background and find one statement piece to build the room around. This "Sobek" framed wall art is the perfect statement-making visual element you need to give your foyer or living room a chic and glamorous update. It can be displayed either vertically or horizontally, depending on the space you have to work with.
Creating texture is not just about how decor and soft furnishings feel, but it's also about “visual texture” - using different materials to add interest and breathe life into a room. It's a way of adding depth and dimension to a room as well as comfort. Add our chic textile wall art "Sobek" to your bedroom or closet to infuse a subdued sense of extravagance, thoughtful curation, and tactile interest. This masterpiece is a reimagined, unique black and white decorative piece that will add a refined B&W feel to your space.
Our beautifully crafted XL sized artworks come safely packed in our super-chic, gift-ready corrugated boxes that are as strong as they are soulful! We believe 'packaging' is part of the products we create - and our goal is to make our materials as earth-friendly as possible.
To experience the majesty of the natural world is a privilege we do not take for granted. Even the smallest sustainable gestures can shape our future - that’s why all Underlyn packaging is made of either recycled and/or biodegradable materials and is 100% recyclable.
