Chimei Hamada Catacomb 1966

Catacomb / etching, aquatint / 35.2×35.2cm / 1966

It’s also collected in the Uffizi Gallery. Drawing a catacomb in Rome, it vividly expresses in etching and aquatint the depth and mystique a catacomb has.

Catacombs were made when Christianity hadn’t been recognized officially. This site makes us feel the process of the history.

Only 20 copies have been published.
