Walking Up The Pyramid is a sepia tone photographic wall art print of people walking up the Mayan pyramid in Chichen Itza. Chichen Itza is one of the most visited Mayan cities by tourist. It is located inland on the Yucatan Peninsula between Merida and Cancun. (Click on the picture for a larger image)
This particular scene no longer happens, as it is not allowed any more. There was a time when tourists were allowed to walk up the pyramid. Having done it, I can attest to how tricky it was due to the steepness and narrow width of the steps. The view for the top was amazing as the Yucatan terrain is pancake flat, so you can see for miles. The structure is one of the wonders of the world and is one of the most highly recognized pyramids outside of Egypt.
I used a sepia tone finish on the photograph for that old rustic look. The sepia brown tones originated with film photography as part of the process to develop the prints in the 1800’s. Today, we can recreate that same vintage look digitally.
This type of wall art print lends itself to a rustic or old vintage type of interior decoration. Even with that said, I have seen this style used in more modern decor that had earth tone elements to it. The way a print is matted and framed can change the entire look of the print.
Your printed version of this art print will not have the, " Kirt Tisdale / TheWallGallery" watermark. The prints are done individually using a giclee technique (Giclee: a technology for fine art or photograph reproduction using a high-quality inkjet printer to make individual copies). The printer is the Epson Stylus wide-format using Epson UltraChrome K3 Ink. They are printed on Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper. The paper is 10 ml in thickness, with 97% opacity and a 92 ISO brightness rating. The print is then hand cut and depending on size packaged in either a firm oversized mailing envelope or a mailing tube for protection.
If you are ordering the All Occasion Cards, they come in a set of 10 with the art print on the front. The inside is blank for your personalization. They are professionally printed on recycled white matte card stock and are presented as a folded 4" X 5.5" card with a matching envelope.
