May 17 '10 Rembrandt Treasure Box

The top of the Rembrandt box. What lovely portraits have come down to us through time.
Originally I had transferred these images onto polyclay, but once done, I felt they lacked the warmth that canvas/fabric can impart, so redid them on linen/homespun.
The tiles are all bits and pieces cut from a series of medallion tiles I made and then dabbed with several metallic paints to both gild and warm them to enhance the images.
