Why did it have to be snakes?
This adventurer and archeologist was not afraid of much...but snakes...well, snakes were not his thing. He may have found his way past his fear for this piece, though! AMCI Regence makes some very exotic frames, all hand finished in Italy, and this gold frame has a unique texture that reminded the customer of flowing sand dunes.
Museum Glass and glass spacers (which separate the art from the glazing layer), were also incorporated into this extraordinary treasure that is bound to create discussions!
