LAST EDITION - THIRD, Ten Prints. (FIRST EDITION OF FIFTEEN PRINTS IS EXECUTED IN BLACK INK ON WHITE PAPER; SECOND EDITION OF TEN PRINTS IS EXECTURD IN A MIX OF INKS ON BLACK PAPER) This etching is from my series entitled MYSTERIOUS PLACES/SACRED SPACES; the image is appropriated from a color photograph I shot on location in 1987. The printmaking techniques employed include intaglio, aquatint, Chine colle, and drypoint. This print exists in three very limited editions of varying colors (each executed in a different ink/paper combination). This edition is executed in French ink (oil-based, Charbonnel Brand; my own mix of three colors) on STONEHENGE black Printmaking Paper (from UK). The moon is done in the Chine colle process (meaning Chinese pasting) using treated mulberry bark paper (from Thailand) that is attached to the paper during the printing. Size of the image on paper (and the measurements of the zinc plate that was etched in acid) is 5 inches high by 7 inches wide (13 cm x 18 cm); the actual print size (paper size) is 11 inches high by 10 inches wide (28 cm x 26 cm). The Cathars were a Christian-based religious active in Europe and especially in the area known as Catalonia in the mid 12th century. Cathars believed that God had only created spiritual perfection and eternity, not the material world that they saw as evil. Many led austere lives as celibate vegetarians. The Cathars' clergy, (The Perfects) were thought be masters of alchemy and magic. Their beliefs earned them severe persecution by the Vatican and Roman Catholic Church, as well as and the French king in Paris. The Cathars were massacred and burned at the stake. It is rumored that a few Cathar leaders hid their treasures (and secret writings) in the surrounding caves/mountains before their execution.
