The image is printed directly on to an aluminium plate which consist of two aluminium sheets with a firm foam core. This makes it very light and durable, and is a great look for any wall. The surface is matt and the corners are slightly rounded. This can hang anywhere in your home even in areas hit by direct sunlight as there is no glass surface to cause unwanted reflections. The image is unframed and comes ready to hang with a metal plate at the back with two small cushions at the bottom to make the image stand out a little bit from the wall.
