Christ On The Cross at Slea Head - Dingle Ireland Canvas Print
This Dingle Ireland canvas print shows Christ on the Cross at Slea Head on the Dingle Peninsula. This shrine was an unexpected surprise during the Slea Head drive on New Year's day years ago. The white stone in the bright morning light was eye catching on its own. The backdrop of the rocks and the surrounding landscape took it to another level. I searched for background information about this Crucifixion sculpture since my visit but beyond its existence I've never found any of the history. I've read this roadside shrine referred to as a "Pieta-like Crucifixion scene" as well as the "Calvary of Christ." I wish I knew more details about it but what I do know from my own eyes is that it is situated at a particularly beautiful and prominent place on the Dingle Peninsula. And I'm sure that many would agree it's an unforgettable sight on a sunny day.
The sunny skies with the streaks of clouds is also a memorable part of this scene. There's almost an angelic quality to those clouds don't you think?
I would love to hear what attracts you to this canvas print of Christ on the Cross in Dingle, Ireland. And if you have any more information about its history, I'd be excited to hear from you as well!

Canvas Prints - Product Information
Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.
After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.
When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.
There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.
After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
