Oryx stamp limited edition print
Numbered, stamped and signed print (1 of 50)
This limited edition 80x60mm oryx stamp on premium 148x105mm sized paper by Rigby artist Geoffrey Lignon is numbered, stamped and signed by the artist. Each print comes presented in a beautiful Rigby blue envelope, wax sealed with the Rigby ‘double R’ logo, making it the perfect gift idea.
To create the artwork Geoffrey began by engraving the oryx onto a 3-4mm thick metal plate. Once completed, the paper for the transfer was soaked in water and the engraving plate dipped in a solution of etching ink and sepia-coloured paint to give it that authentic, period look. The plate was then passed through a rolling press with the paper, to transfer the artwork and create this unique stamp.
The engraving of the oryx has taken Geoffrey 12 hours to complete and is one of his first works of art, having engraved the plate while completing his studies at the Liege School of Gunmaking in Belgium. What makes it even more unique is that this original plate was used as part of Geoffrey’s portfolio in applying to join the Rigby team.
