To learn more about this artist go to http://www.estadao.com.br/divirtase/noticias/2003/fev/03/126.htm also see http://mujweb.cz/Kultura/Grapheion/13-00a.htm There are three fundamental vectors in Maria Bonomi's route: her respect for the craft, the craftsmanship in the technique of woodcut, and her public works. She has turned the technique of woodcut into a paradigm and re-covered it with themes that seemed so distant: the lyical vision of the planted fields, the horizons, the proteic form capable of unfolding in multiple forms and meanings endless cicles... These shapes repeat and multiply themselves in many and various ways but each time they find a new, actual identity. Maria Bonomi explains: "I always do the same thing, and it is always different."Maria Bonomi,
I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
