Colonial Gunpowder Magazine - Williamsburg Metal Print
This Williamsburg metal print features the historic 1715 Colonial Gunpowder Magazine. This is an original building and was the location of the famous 1775 Gunpowder incident near the outset of the American Revolution. The Royal Governor of the colony of Virginia ordered the seizure of the gunpowder held there which started local unrest and the mustering of militia throughout the colony. So not only is this building centuries old, it's the setting for American history you likely learned in school, kids!
The image itself was taken in the warm glow of the evening sun on a late summer day. The skies, I think, have a taste of fall color to them but personally what catches my eyes the most is the warm glow on those old bricks and the defensive cheval de frise in the foreground. A beautiful contrast to the cool blue sky and green of the landscape.

Metal Prints - Product Information
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.
