Easter 1985 is a limited edition print or serigraph of an edition size of 50, by Roy Henry Vickers, Tsimshian First Nations Artist from the Pacific Northwest Coast.

"During the 1970's, I was struck by the message of Christianity and the culmination of religious celebrations that happen each Easter. I wanted to remind people that Easter was more than bunny rabbits and Easter egg hunts, and so I painted a number of renditions of the face of Christ.

The Easter of 1985 found me again wanting to create a work that would leave a lasting impression and provide the viewer with cause for meditation. I reworked an older painting showing the face of Christ in red, with a crown of thorns and a face of a man in black. The basic thought behind this creation was that if we identify with Christ in his crucifixion and death, we also acknowledge his resurrection and everlasting life."

This serigraph is from April 1985 and is signed, numbered (6/50) and titled in original by the artist. The image size is 13 inches or close to 33 centimeters wide and 17 inches or 43 centimeters high. 

The print is framed and matted, is in good condition and has no visual imperfections. You might see some reflections in the glass. Personal viewing is recommended. We do not ship framed prints, since the danger of the glass damaging the print is too great. We will however ship the print without frame and matting. 

The price includes shipping without the frame.
