Daniel's Answer to the King, by Briton Riviere

We framed a giclee print of "Daniel's Answer to the King", by Briton Riviere (1840-1920) last month. Instead of putting on clear glass which is reflective, we varnish the artwork as a layer of protection. An 'antique'  frame wood with linen liner is used to frame the print, provide a sense of history to the artwork.

"My God sent his angel, and he shut the mouths of the lions. They have not hurt me, because I was found innocent in his sight. Nor have I ever done any wrong before you, O king." (Daniel 6:22, NIV)

** Story about Daniel in the den of lions is written in the Scripture, Book of Daniel Chapter 6.
** Daniel's Answer to the King. Painted in 1890, it is now in the Manchester City Art Gallery.
