New Mexico is famous for its petroglyphs. These pieces were made in reverse of my usual technique of pushing forward from the back. I pushed back into the copper to simulate the chipping of rock to create the petroglyphs. I came up with this idea as a solution to the problem of using some previously wrinkled copper. All petroglyph pieces are wrapped around a piece of wood and require no framing. This piece is 4" x 6."
Please note that the visible color of the copper greatly depends on the light it is reflecting and will vary between photographs and during the course of the day.
