As to shipment, when the lacquer has dried the painting is ready to be shipped. A customized wooden art-crate will be build to secure the painting during its journey. The painting will be wrapped in acid-free paper and then wrapped in a layer of safety foam before placing it into the crate. In the art-crate I will include a formal Certificate of Authenticity with my unique family signet. Unpacking instructions will be placed on the outside of the crate as well as all necessary documents for shipment and customs.
