Saint Peter's Square

360 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Vatican City, the Holy See

Saint Peter’s Square is the public welcoming center of Vatican City, the papal seat of the Catholic Church, and it lies directly in front of Saint Peter’s Basilica. At the center of the square is an uninscribed Egyptian obelisk made of red granite, known as the Vatican Obelisk. This obelisk was originally erected in Heliopolis, Egypt, and was later moved by two different Roman emperors, eventually being placed along the spina at the center of the Circus of Nero, which was located on this site during ancient times. Encircling the square are the colossal Doric colonnades, which are made to welcome the masses into the “maternal arms of Mother Church.” The perspective of this image, showing the encircling of the colonnades opening wide and the points of the dome of Saint Peter’s Basilica and the cross atop the obelisk reaching into the starry sky, is made to reflect this idea of the church welcoming the masses of the earth into the embrace of the heavens.

Print only

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

Our acrylic glass displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain one of our photographic prints sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden mounting brace on the rear causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.
