THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR

1,500.00

An original collage made from over 20 original hand cut pieces from a series of books titled 'The History of France' published in London, 1883 by Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 188 Fleet Street, London. Each original piece is made up of numerous found images taken from the same source material, which is then precisely hand cut with carbon scissors and medical grade scalpel blades to create a new narrative based on the elements gathered together.

The Knights Templar was a large organization of devout Christians during the medieval era who carried out an important mission: to protect European travelers visiting sites in the Holy Land while also carrying out military operations. A wealthy, powerful and mysterious order that has fascinated historians and the public for centuries, tales of the Knights Templar, their financial acumen, their military prowess and their work on behalf of Christianity during the Crusades still circulate throughout modern culture.

Original collage 11”x7”.

Price for collage only. Framing on request.
