We use the milling method - this is metal processing, which consists in the formation of new surfaces by separating the surface layers of the material with the formation of chips. It is carried out by removing the chips with a cutting tool cutter, milling cutter, etc. Since for milling, rolled metal is taken with a hardness that exceeds the metal of hot casting by 35% - 60%, and for finishing (final) processing, small diameter cutters (up to D 0.5 mm) with a rotation frequency of more than 20,000 rpm are used, the surface of products is made of brass, steel, titanium and aluminum do not require further processing, since the surface is polished, with a cleanliness class of 12-13 (the height of the irregularities is 0.2 - 0.1 microns).
The bas-relief is made of 16mm brass plate, special jewelry "gold" brass (Cu 63-65% + Zn 35-37%), rolled, is used. This alloy is less susceptible to natural oxidation and is absolutely safe for humans.
A golden-colored embossed baguette was specially made for the painting, organically combined with the bas-relief. Passepartout is made of orange fabric with a velvety surface. The back side is made of 1 cm thick plywood, on the back there are 2 hook slots for wall mounting.
The surface of the painting was artificially aged, in other words, an artistic patina was applied. This technique emphasizes the relief of the picture more strongly, as well as simplifies the perception of details and, as a whole, gives the picture the effect of noble antiquity. Please note that the color in the photo and the color in reality may differ slightly, this is due to the different color reproduction of the camera and monitors.
The painting "Knight Death and the Devil" (German: Ritter, Tod und Teufel) was created in 1513 by the German artist Albrecht Durer, and is one of the author's three engraving workshops. Albrecht Durer is a German painter, printmaker and graphic artist, one of the greatest masters of the Western European Renaissance. Recognized as the largest European master of woodcuts, who raised it to the level of true art. The first art theorist among northern European artists, the author of a practical guide to the visual and decorative arts in German, promoting the need for the diversified development of artists.
The founder of comparative anthropometry. In addition to the above, he left a noticeable mark in military engineering by developing the theory of fortification. The first European artist to write an autobiography.
Description of the painting and symbolism. A knight rides along a forest gorge on a slowly walking war horse. The stern face of the battle-hardened warrior is calm, he boldly looks ahead.
His body is chained in beautiful armor, on his shoulder he holds a faithful spear, in a sheath on his belt rests a blade waiting in the wings. Death astride a stunted horse rides across the knight, trying to stop him. On her head is a crown with grave worms and snakes curling around her forehead.The knight was so used to Noseless that he did not even honor her with his attention. Death holds an hourglass in his hands, reminding the knight of the brevity of his life and the futility of his efforts. The devil in the guise of a wild boar walks behind the knight, in his left paw he holds a gaff with which he captures sinful and weak souls. But the knight's armor does not allow him to use his favorite tool. Without abandoning his attempts to take possession of the soul of a warrior, the devil grabs the knight by the belt with his paw. The will of the rider is unbending and the clawed paw unbends, leaving the third fellow traveler with an open mouth and bulging eyes in surprise. In the view of Dürer, the knight has long defeated the fear of Death and the Devil thanks to faith and military fearlessness. The artist captures the moment of the struggle, the devil still holds the knight, his muscles are tense, and the rider himself gets up in the saddle, preparing for the final dash. The artist specially emphasizes the place where the Knight, Death and the Devil fight. This gorge through which a lot of water passed, she carried out the bones and gravestones, scattering them on the shore, broke the trees, exposing the rhizomes. The remaining trees have no leaves - they are dead. In this image we can hear a passage from David's prayer... If I go along the valley of the shadow of death, I will not fear evil, because You are with me...
Next to the skull lying on the ground in front of the war horse, the author depicted a gravestone "S 1513 AD", which means September 1513, Albrecht Durer. The artist has always been sensitive to death, suffice it to say that of his seventeen brothers and sisters, only two did not die in infancy. The one who is among us today will rest in the cemetery tomorrow. Seek grace daily, for you can die at any moment.
The engraving "Knight, Death and the Devil" is saturated with secret signs and symbols. The horse represents the strength of the rider. Sword - purity of thoughts, honor. Spear - fearlessness, masculinity, invincibility. Number of horns - the amount of demonic power (maximum 7 horns).
The presence of a weapon in the devil is an aggressive attitude. The lizard is the guardian of the border of the other world. Hourglass - irrevocability, impossibility to correct the past. Skull - the futility of human goals and desires. Hail on a hill - the thoughts and goals of the knight.
