Kahiil Gibran
A Lebanese Poet and Philosopher

"His power came from some great reservoir of spiritual life else it could not have been so universal and so potent, but the majesty and beauty of the language with which he clothed it were all his own." -- Claude Bragdon

A Woodland Godess A print from a copper etching
using the Chine-collé process

Chine-collé is a special technique in printmaking, in which the image is transferred to a surface that is bonded to a heavier support during the printing process. One purpose is to allow the printmaker to print on a much more delicate surface, such as Japanese paper or linen, which pulls finer details off the plate. Another purpose is to provide a background colour behind the image that is different from the surrounding backing sheet (Process description from Wikipedia)
