Great work! Did you use real wood or a substitute?

Πολύ ωραία ξυλογραφία. Γιατί γράφεις ότι είναι λεπτομέρεια από Doré; Να μου δείξεις την αρχική εικόνα;

Σε ευχαριστώ πολύ!
Αυτό που βλέπεις είναι η λεπτομέρεια από ένα μεγαλύτερο χαρακτικό του Dore όπου ο Αρθούρος είναι μέσα σε μία αίθουσα με πολλούς ιππότες γύρω του. Η σειρά αυτή των χαρακτικών αποτελεί ουσιαστικά εικονογράφηση για το "Idyll's of the King" του lord Tennyson. Δυστυχώς στο internet δεν υπάρχουν πολλές εικόνες απ' αυτή τη σειρά, ούτε και αυτή από την οποία έκανα την σπουδή.

I hope that you have seen a good version of Dore's Tennyson's Idyll's.....
_Not_ the terrible Dover reproductions......
The difference between old copies scattered about today, and the originals, is like night and day...
Luckly, I got an original from about 170 years ago, and aside from some foxing...
is like new... really a great example of 19th century engraving...crystal clear... I can only imagine what Dore might do today....

e peres menes meres stekoun embrosta mas
sa meera sera kerakia anemena....

That's great! You're very lucky! Which print do you have?
I have a very good book of Tennyson's Idyl's and the fotos of the prints are big and clean!
I see that you can quote Cavafy! My personal favorite is "Aemilianus Monae"
