Herod the Great, King of Judea, receives the Magi, on their way to meet Jesus. And they inform the sovereign that a new "King", greater and more powerful than him, is about to be born. For Herod it is unbearable: and he ruthlessly orders to kill all children under two years of age, to kill Jesus too and maintain his kingdom. In one of the most tragic and shocking scenes in the entire Scrovegni Chapel, Giotto represents the cruel sovereign atop a tower, intent on giving the order for the massacre. Below, women scream and cry, while piles of small corpses pile up in the foreground. In our reproductions on Amalfi canvas or paper, the Italian artisans manage to render every detail, especially the shocked faces of the mothers and the dark and angry look of Herod.

How reproductions are made

The artisans of ExpoitalyART make a reproduction of this subject with a unique mechanism . The image is in fact printed several times as a test, until the correct combination of color tones is found. Finally, a professional 12-color inkjet printer creates a perfect copy, which is double-checked by hand and left to dry in protected environments. The artisans spread a natural fixative to preserve the shine and sharpness of the image and package the product entirely by hand.

Appreciated and used today by true connoisseurs of quality, fine papers or pictorial canvases have an ancient tradition. Symbol of Made in Italy recognized throughout the world, these extremely refined prints represent priceless subjects that come to life in a new light.

When printing is carried out, it passes to drying which in protected environments and with precise temperature and humidity helps the colors to remain vivid and full-bodied. The following fixing serves to keep the colors as just done forever. In fact, the fixer comes directly into contact with the surface and creates a real physical barrier between the colors and dust or bad weather.

The choice of frames is then a delicate and precise design step . Beech, maple or cherry, each with its own peculiarities and colours. With natural elements, we have special frames with incredible brilliance and lightness.
The matching of the frames is clearly done depending on the subject. To help us in the choice, art experts and painting masters carry out tests and tell us which choice to make.
All reproductions are chosen and followed by our Italian artisans.
