Milky Way Flame is a striking handmade masterpiece crafted by Helena Martin in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, and backed with a certificate of authenticity. The coloring is an artistically altered compilation of NASA photography applied in rich acrylic inks and sandwiched between two layers of a glossy clear coat. Behind the colors, the surface of the metal is carefully ground by hand, so the precise pattern you see in the background has an almost holographic effect as ambient light passes through the colors and reflects off the grooves of the grind pattern. This remarkably technical composition is referred to as an original multiple, as the hand-crafted elements are closely replicable by the artist, but with enough natural, subtle variations to make it truly unique. This original abstract art features a nebula scene, applied in semi-transparent hues of fire red, yellow, orange, metallic black, etc. on ground and colored metal with an attractive high gloss finish. The aluminum is rather lightweight so the artwork easy to hang from the metal sawtooth brackets on back, and is even suitable for indoor/outdoor placement due to the weather and fade resistant finishes. This stunning wall art is an instant conversation piece and crowd pleaser in any contemporary setting.
