Today's Photohunter's theme is FAKE as presented by TNCHICK
The following are a couple of shots of the painting in my kitchen. These are meant to look like ceramic tile- when, in fact, they have been painted.
The large motif over the sink is a copy of a pattern common on hand-painted Italian ceramic, specifically from the town of Deruta (which is famous for it's ceramic workshops). You will notice on the back left edge of the sink a small vase with the same pattern painted on it.
My aunt and uncle own one of these workshops- therefore, I have many of these pieces
