A beautifully handmade illuminated Big Dipper constellation woodblock print within a light box. The perfect gift for star gazers!
An original woodblock print of the star constellation Big Dipper (or The Plough or Saucepan!) which forms part of the larger constellation Ursa Major or Big Bear. Probably one of the most recognised of the star constellations.
The print has been cleverly placed within a light box to create this illuminated astrological night skyscape and would make a truly unique addition to any home décor. Position the light box either on a shelf or hung on a wall.
The print itself has been hand printed and hand pulled from a ply woodblock in midnight blue water soluble ink. The stars have been cut out and shine slightly brighter than the surrounding sky.
The energy efficient LED lights behind the print produce a lovely warm, soft glow and as such would make an ideal night light or living room side light.
The choice of handtyped text of either of the constellation names is done using an old Imperial 66 Typewriter which gives the print an elegant aged old world feel in its style.
