Tramp Art Notched and Stacked Paper Cross Memorial in Oval Frame

This paper cross was done in the same way the cigar boxes were chip carved. Transient artists traveled the country creating wonderful folk art, and selling it, earning enough money to keep them going. The 7" by 9" paper cross is composed of 10 layers, each meticulously notched, and each smaller than the previous one, building a 3-dimensional model. The oval frame is a shallow shadow box, adding to the dimensionality. The cross is backed with black velvet, and it is wrapped with green foliage. The backing, 1/8" thick hardwood has the velvet, and the cross, affixed to the other side. This is a most unusual folk art offering.
