Paris, a.k.a. The City of Lights

I took the city of Paris, also known as the "City of Lights", and decided to look at it from a different perspective. The light bulbs above are lighting up the city at night, as you see a person looking down on the city to see everything it has to offer. It is the complete tour of Paris from above. The lampshade on the Eiffel Tower represents the night. This is my version of the City of Lights.

We use the finest wood available. The wood is given a look of forged, hammered metal. It looks like an old pewtered mug one would find in an European castle. The frame will fit well with a contempory environment or a traditional home. The finish is neutral with a width of 2 5/8" and Rabbet 5/8".
