Road to Enlightenment

The idea for this piece came after a long needed vacation to Nantucket. It is a beautiful island with deserted beaches and quaint little villages. By the time we left, I felt rejuvenated and ready to work again. This image allows you to do the same thing. People are heading towards the light and leaving all their worries behind. It is the perfect place to unwind. The city below is Paris and the lighthouse was taken in Nantucket.

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".
