On the right page is a portion of St. Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians, the twenty-third through twenty-ninth verses of its eleventh chapter, regarding the worthy reception of Holy Communion.

The plants filling the borders include cucumber vine, magnolia, oak, dogrose and ivy.

I can color this print by hand, using pigment-based calligraphers’ inks applied with brushes. I use 23k gold leaf and/or palladium leaf for the illuminated details. Please note that the brilliance of the leaf does not show well in the scanned image. Each hand-colored print is unique. The one you receive will not be identical to the one shown here.

The hand-colored print with illuminated details costs $529. You may use the button below to pay via PayPal, debit card or credit card. Be sure to confirm the shipping address. See this page for additional ordering instructions and general information. If you want to pay via a check or money order, please e-mail me at danielmitsuiartist at gmail dot com.
