The image/design is printed on a polyester canvas with a silver base. The white areas become metallic and all other areas have an iridescent shimmer. The canvas is hand-stretched on 1.5" kiln-dried and knot-free pine wood bars, and finished with a mirror wrap (image is mirrored on the sides of the canvas). Light and strong, the canvas material is made in the USA with a water-resistant coating, and arrives ready to hang. Felt pads are included for wall protection.
