This is an example of relief printing. The artist took a block of wood and carved into it what his final image was to look like. After running ink over it, the ink would be more prominent on the higher pieces of wood. This would leave the pieces carved out to stay with no color. The final product can be mass produced by adding more ink to the block of wood. It takes longer to carve out the wood then to actually paint the image, but makes it easier to reproduce. I love this image. It reminds me of equality and justice for all. It is extremely intricate and must of taken a long time to create.
