The Martyrdom of St. Catherine
Have embarked on yet another artistic channel - intaglio and this is my first effort (it has been a long and difficult procedure getting it right. It still isn't but the plate is almost worn out before I even get an edition out of it. This is after a stone carving I saw at the entrance of the Thanh Cathedral in Alsace. St.Catherine was to be broken on the wheel, but it was miraculously destroyed so they boiled her alive instead.
