Unframed, quality fine art print of subject analogous with burgers, Burghers & Calais. 

Rodin's magnificent sculpture of the Calais councilmen sacrificing themselves to spare their fellow citizens during the 100 years war has, as far as i am aware, nothing to do with the humble hamburger. Perhaps Edward III would have granted them each a meat sandwich as their last meal. Given that the starving, condemned men were released shortly afterwards on the intervention of the more mercifully minded English Queen, perhaps they adjourned to a nearby Medieval café for a meal avec frites. It's a reminder that food, too much or too little, is so often at the root of history.  

Printed using extremely fine, pigment-based archival ink, giving maximum possible vibrancy, clarity, and depth of image.

Printed on 310g heavyweight Giclée Hahnemühle German Etching paper.
