Native art from Fiji Art from Italy Picture of sherpas from Nepal

Many customers have asked Polkadot Pictures & Framing to frame souvenir art from their travels abroad.  Here is a selection of these often fascinating items.

COMMISSIONS - souvenir art

Picture of a Chinese crane, created out of tissue paper Painting of peacock from India Picture of Buddhas, from India

This picture of a crane, from China, was created out of tissue paper. It was framed without a mount, using spacers to keep the delicate tissue paper away from the glass.

The picture of these Nepalese sherpas was framed using a mount with a black bevelled edge in order to tone with the black border of the painting, which was painted on to fabric.

Aboriginal art from Australia

This painting of a peacock was framed in a gold-coloured frame, which not only perfectly matches the painting but also reflects the status of the peacock as the national bird of India.

This art from Fiji was created on textile and was surface mounted on to mountboard in order to show the decorative edges.
