Gravity, give it back to the weight of the earth…

Fourth and last version of my fragment of Rainer Maria Rilke’s Sonnets to Orpheus that I was telling you about here.
The first inked version does not satisfy me so I changed for an intaglio lettering for the original version and a very small and elongated version for the French translation.

All this is done on watercolor paper, iron gall ink and Prussian blue.

  1. This is awesome and so impressive. I love this you combined French and German. One would have though, that it is impossible to mix the large and the small letters yet you found a way. What is the size of the piece?
