About This Image

There's a wonderful metaphor in the Bible [Revelation 2:17] about –a white pebble”.

–Let the one who has an ear hear what the spirit says to the congregations: To him that conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white pebble, and upon the pebble a new name written which no one knows except the one receiving it.”

The metaphor was once explained to me by a Catholic monk. To paraphrase:

–You have three selves: The per son that you think you are, the person that other people think you are, and the person that God thinks you are. The white pebble represents the latter. And of the three, it is by far the most important.”

He then gave me some good advice, something I've always kept with me:

–When life gets really tough, just remember the white pebble. Just remember who you really are. Just remember the person that only God can see.”

Whatever your thoughts on God or Religion may be, positive or negative, the white pebble is a very simple metaphor that audaciously asks the question: –Who are you, really?”

Yes, why are you here, exactly? Who are you here for? Your self? Other people? God? Or maybe some other cause? You tell meÄ

It's one of those questions that never gets old. Unlike the poor body that houses us.

A Word on Framing - Or, why you should let us do it for you:

Having spent your hard earned cash on a beautiful piece of art we strongly recommend professional framing.

Our limited edition giclée prints and serigraphs are printed on the best archival paper available. It is designed to last a very, very long time. We've seen clients who have taken both routes; inexpensive poster frames, which will ensure that the print will not survive the fullness of time, and top end, proper museum type framing.

We have contracted with a local framer, so that you can get a really high quality professionally framed print for probably half of what your frame shop would charge.

We frame our giclée prints using a high quality mat between the print and the plexiglass. For our larger serigraphs we make shadow box frames so that the artwork is set back from the UV plexiglass, and the artwork is floating, 'hinged' to a back board that will make it stand out and look amazing. The moldings we offer are 1" 5/8 (4.25cm) minimalist sleek black or white matte lacquered wood.

Special framing requests are welcome. Questions? email us at art@gapingvoid.com
