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.
Starry Night - Van Gogh
Van Gogh's famous Starry Night is painted all the way around on the inside of a mouth blown glass with oil paint. The night sky filled with swirling clouds, stars ablaze with their own luminescence, and a bright crescent moon.
The Painting itself has been in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City since 1941. It is among best-known paintings of Van Gogh and marks a decisive turn towards greater imaginative freedom in his art.
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. It comes with the certificate of authenticity and a story about the painting.
It is a true collector's item. A unique keepsake to be treasured from generation to generation. A beautiful present for an art lover.
