SS. THOMAS AQUINAS & ANSELM of CANTERBURY
LETTERPRESS PRINT by DANIEL MITSUI


SS. THOMAS AQUINAS & ANSELM of CANTERBURY


This print depicts these two saintly theologians with their traditional attributes. St. Thomas Aquinas wears his Dominican habit and holds a book of his writing and a miniature church. A sunburst shines on his breast. St. Anselm of Canterbury wears episcopal vestments and carries a crosier and a miniature ship.

Below them, a stylized vine and tiny plants and animals surround a banderole, on which is written Fides Querens Intellectum (Faith Seeking Understanding), the personal motto of St. Anselm and the general motto of all scholastic theology.

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 $206. You may use the button below to pay via PayPal, debit card or credit card. Be sure to confirm the shipping address.
