Brass Rubbing Art, King Robert
Item Details
Description
Brass Rubbing Art, King Robert This work is matted and framed Some wear on the frame 22inx13in 2 1/2lbs Brass grave rubbing from the tomb of Robert the Bruce from Dunfermline Abby in Fife , Scotland. Art History: Brasses were used to commemorate death in England, Scotland and Wales between the 15th and 17th centuries. These brasses consisted of engraved sheets of metal over stone slabs that were set into floors of medieval churches, used as "table tombs" or perhaps mounted on church walls. Brass rubbings are created by laying a sheet of paper on top of brass (then called "latten" - a zinc-copper alloy produced via the obsolete calamine brass process) and rubbing the paper with graphite, wax, or chalk, a process similar to rubbing a pencil over a piece of paper placed on top of a coin.
