Detail of the Battersea Shield, Iron Age, c350-c50 BC. The La Tène-style scrolling decoration is made using the repoussé technique, emphasized with engraving and stippling. The Battersea shield was not made for serious warfare, instead, it was probably made for display. It was finally thrown or placed in the River Thames, where many weapons were offered as sacrifices in the Bronze Age and Iron Age. From the British Museum's collection.
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
