Death & the Maiden: Shifting Sands


Death & the Maiden: Shifting Sands is part of the Death & the Maiden® collection — a collaboration between artists Jasmine Becket-Griffith and David Van Gough. This painting was inspired by a collaborative sketch card and painted by both Jasmine & David. Masterpiece Editions are hand embellished by both painters. Shifting Sands features the iconic Hourglass, patterned in Blue Willow porcelain, a study of the fragility of life, the passing of time, and how life can be fleeting.

Glossy Photo Prints

All Glossy Photo Prints are printed on a glossy photo paper with archival inks. A 1/2″ white border is included around the printed area of the artwork. When you select the print size and type that you want to purchase, the Printed Area Dimensions will appear below your selection. Please note the dimensions to make sure that the print you select is a size that will work for your needs. We cannot provide custom print sizes at this time. What you see offered is what is available.

Open Edition Canvas Prints

These prints are made on canvas with archival inks and varnished with a UV resistant finish. They are gallery-wrap style — stretched over a frame and are shipped ready-to-hang. The canvas sides are printed in black, creating a natural self-framing effect, so you don’t have to purchase an additional frame if you don’t want to. The entire piece is also painted with a UV varnish and then heat set for maximum protection and longevity. They are truly beautiful pieces and it is often difficult to tell them apart from the originals. The open edition canvases are on deep gallery wrapped boards. The Open Editions are set to a specific size format and there may be some slight cropping around the edges from the original artwork.

Masterpiece Edition Prints

For this painting, Masterpiece Limited Edition Hand-Embellished Canvases will be limited to 5 total. Each Masterpiece Edition will be hand embellished by both Jasmine and David. Hand embellishments are made with thin layers of the same high-quality acrylic paints used in the original paintings to ensure a smooth, even appearance to the finished piece. The embellishments include subtle painterly enhancements to the print — no brand new subjects or objects are usually added so as to preserve the original character and composition of the piece. The Masterpiece Editions are signed and numbered by both artists on both the front and the back of the canvas. Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery. We first have to make the canvas prints, ship them to Jasmine and David to hand-embellish, ship them back to our fine art printer for stretching, finishing, packaging and shipment to you — a quite time consuming process.
