Our friend from Ojinaga created this wonderful frame for us. We had so many requests for such frame, we decided to offer this brick red one.
The deep red frame is accented in metallic gold and measures 8-1/2 inches high (including the concha trim) by 7-1/2 inches wide and is 1 inch deep. The concha (curved part on top) measures about 1-1/4 inch high by 4-3/8 inches wide. All of these measurements are approximate as each is hand made from recycled Mexican fruit crates (rejas) and occasionally, of new wood.
The center of the concha features a small calaca, or hand made plaster Day of the Dead Skull.
The back of the frame is rough. You can either glue your piece to the frame, or, indeed, glue the frame to your artwork. This would even make a wonderful doorway to a large ofrenda, shrine or mixed media piece.
