Description

Carpe Diem - Sunrise Metal Print by Mark Tisdale.

This vivid sunrise metal print features the Latin phrase Carpe diem. This motivational phrase is often said to mean "Seize the day" but I recently read an article that said that's not the literal translation of the words. In Latin it means "plucking the day." As a metaphor, it probably means something akin to "gather ye rose buds while ye may." When we translate metaphors, we often give them a translation than attempts to convey the meaning. And "seize the day" is probably a lot more motivational than "plucking the day" isn't it?

The phrase Carpe diem is shown over a sunrise scene that is mean to suggest those first few moments of morning when the sun has yet to actually appear but the horizon is glowing with color. The night sky has not yet entirely retreated. If you're going to seize the day, you might as well get an early start.

Does the artwork on this Carpe diem metal print inspire you to make the most of the day?

Metal Prints - Product Information

Example of Metal Print
Metal Prints - Back Frame

Metal prints are a contemporary and stylish choice that will arrive at your door ready to hang.

The artwork is printed on a 1/16" thick sheet of aluminum that is then mounted on a 3/4" thick wooden frame. The wooden frame is recessed from the edge of the print giving the appearance of a thin high-gloss metal print that appears to be offset from your wall.

Each metal print is made to your order and printed using archival quality materials that should last a lifetime. Metal prints take 10 to 15 business days to produce and are shipped directly to you in sturdy packaging.

The only decision you will have to make when ordering your metal print is how large you would like it to be.
