Background Info and Provenance
A LIMITED EDITION artist woodcut print (created BY HAND) by world-renowned artist, K H Hansen-Bahia (only 93 in this design were produced). Hansen-Bahia is a German artist, famous for his woodcut prints. His work is characterized by an elaborate design quality yet the subject matter is nearly always simple and expressive. He is famous for the fantasy feel of his work. Even though this is a landscape it still has his trademark feel. I love the colours which are what immediately drew me to it. His technique further draws you in. Though simple in flavour when you look closer, Hansen-Bahia’s work has an elaborate depth of colour and texture particularly in the rocky outcrops of this piece. Though I’ve seen quite a few woodcuts by Hansen-Bahia this is a favourite.
Hansen-Bahia surrealist treatment of his subjects has found a swarm of admirers world-wide … so much so that there’s now a museum for his work in the Brazilian city of Cachoeira. Hansen-Bahia died in 1978 but through this museum his work will continue to live on and inspire future generations. Hansen-Bahia is the recipient of many accolades and awards including the American Prize of International Graphic Arts in Buenos Aires in 1970. Hansen-Bahia’s first woodcuts were done in 1946- this one was created in 1965 when he was at the height of his game.
The famous Brazilian poet Jorge Amado added the name Hansen as a tribute to the Brazilian state of Bahia in the 1950s. He has since been known as Hansen-Bahia. However, he never denied his ties to his hometown of Hamburg, Germany.
Woodcut printing is a time-intensive process all done by HAND. Cutting back the timber requires great skill, time and energy therefore wood-cut prints are also high in prana (life energy).

When you invest in hand-made art there are few better ways to invest in your home and reduce your carbon footprint.

PICK-UP . . . from 30 or 40 minutes North of BRISBANE city is accepted but postage is preferred as my home is hard to find. Because of this I will nominate a friend or family member for you to collect the item from if you need collection. Pick-up in person must be worked out prior to purchase- thank you. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ POSTAGE is offered internationally. All our Decorative Arts pieces are delivered through AUSTRALIA POST. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ POSTAGE ESTIMATES. . . . ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ To BRISBANE- most of our pieces cost $15 - $18 to send. . . To SYDNEY or MELBOURNE- Small Vase- around $20 - $23, Medium Vase- around $20 - $25, Large Vase- around $24 - $30. Let us know if you need an EXACT COST for postage prior to purchase. The above postage estimates include $2.95 for a signature on delivery. . . INSURANCE against being lost or broken in transit up to the value of $200 is included in the estimates above. If your item is cheaper or more expensive than $200 this will effect your postage fee slightly. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ A BOXING FEE of $3.00 is included in the fee above to cover the cost of searching for and storing used packing materials. With the millions of cardboard boxes that end up as landfill every year we don’t believe in supporting the manufacture of boxes for post. Instead of buying new boxes and packing materials and passing this cost onto our customers we spend considerable time sourcing used boxes and then fashioning boxes to fit each item. We do the same for bubble-wrap and foam pieces. This requires a large investment of time, energy, ingenuity, organization and storage space- it is much easier and cheaper to buy new packing materials but I can’t justify taking the easy way out when so much packing material ends up polluting our earth. Our $3.00 charge does little to pay for the time (and storage) needed do this and to pack your item (there is also the time needed to get your package to the post office). This is something we’re happy to do for our customers and the environment. We appreciate your support in this area.
