Color: Amber / #FF7E00
12" x 16"
About this piece:
Amber is made from turpentine. It’s blended with the powders of the seashells and then mixed with dó paper (kind of Vietnamese paper) to create a sheet of paper for Dong Ho Painting, a Vietnamese folk woodcut painting. Because of turpentine and seashell, the paper has an amber sparkling background and it is ready to be printed by other nature colors like red gravels, burnt bamboo leaves, senna flowers, egg shells.
This is one painting in my series paintings about Vietnamese under French domination which is called Annamite series.
The man in this painting is God of Wealth. He is the gate guardian who brings fortune and luck and protects people from diseases and bad things in Vietnamese beliefs.
