The ornament is hand-painted on the inside of the hand-blown glass bulb with oil paint using the “Reverse Painting” technique. The foreground is painted first and the background is applied last. All the painting is done from the inside through the hole at the top of a glass ball using special narrow brushes. There are several layers of paint applied to achieve the effect of depth. The card explaining the technique is included.
Noah's Ark Ornament
Noah's Ark is the vessel through which God spares Noah, his family, and examples of all the world's animals from a world-engulfing flood. Different animals moving towards the boat are painted on the ornament: a pair of pandas, penguins, giraffes, wolves, tigers, lions, elephants, rabbits, doves. The animals are painted on both front and back of the ornament.
The ornament is 3x3 inches petite round shape.
It is sealed with a matching blue glass cap and an adjustable gold tassel on a top that allows for display on a Christmas tree or a decorative stand.
It is packaged in a blue velvet gift box with satin-lined inside.
