Apples are part of the much larger Rosacea family and cousin to the Rose.
It is an open pollinating plant that relies heavily on bees for pollination. It is one of the earliest trees that was cultivated with references dating back to pre Roman times. Seeds have been found in Anatolia which carbon date to 6500 BC and a fossilised apple seed from the Neolithic period found in England.
Intoxicating by their very nature, apple blossoms are symbolic of heady love and both Apple blossoms and trees were honoured by the ancient Celts as a symbol of love, and they would decorate their bed-chambers with these blossoms to entice amorous nights. In Scandinavian legends, the North-European gods and goddesses were fed an apple every evening by Iduna: She was the keeper of the magic apples of immortality, which the gods must eat to preserve their youth.
VAST photos are the highest resolution photos ever made.
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.
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.
