Sightseeing was a Blast

It is possible that San Marco's square could be flooded under a foot of water, but it is quite rare. San Marco's square could never be under swells of this magnitude. The photograph of the storm was taken in the Pacific from a large sailboat. I combined the two photographs to create this surrealistic image in order to follow my twisted artistic vision. The swells of the ocean are so beautiful as is the majestic architecture of the famous San Marco's Basilica and the Palazzo Ducale in Venice.

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".
