Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Lincoln

Lincoln Cathedral - Lincoln, Lincolnshire - United Kingdom

In the year 2560 BC the Great Pyramid of Giza was completed, making it the tallest structure in the world. It wasn't until almost 4,000 years later that the record height of the pyramid was surpassed. Building commenced on Lincoln Cathedral in 1088, however there were multiple re-buildings and expansions to the the building over the next two centuries. In its final iteration, completed in 1311, Lincoln Cathedral topped out at 520 feet, making it the tallest building in the world. A title it would retain until its main tower spire collapsed in a storm 238 years later. Unsurprisingly, Lincoln Cathedral is rich in history that goes just beyond its physical structure. Today it is perhaps best known for having one of 4 original copies of the Magna Carta. King John signed the Magna Carta in 1215 at Runymeade. Hugh of Wells, the then Bishop of Lincoln was present at Runymeade and also a signatory of the Magna Carta. He brought back a sealed copy of the Great Charter to Lincoln. It was kept at the cathedral for hundreds of years before being moved in 1993 to Lincoln Castle, from whose walls this photo was taken. The Magna Carta along with the 1217 Charter of the Forest can be viewed in the castle vault.

Metal Print - Ready to Hang

Metal Print - Ready to Hang

With metal prints the brilliant surface offers a richness of color that makes viewers take notice.  But they also solve the "problem" of framing. Traditional mounting, matting, and framing can be a time consuming and expensive process. Not so with Metal Prints, the metal surface is naturally smooth and rigid, and with a hanger attached to the back, they are ready to hang right out of the box. This is a great choice for a ready to hang contemporary piece of wall art at a more econonimal price.

Canvas Gallery Wrap - Ready to Hang

Canvas Gallery Wrap - Ready to Hang

Canvas Gallery Wraps offer a superb way to display your photographs. What makes canvas wraps so popular is that they eliminate the need (and cost) of framing. Your Canvas Wrap is ready to hang on your wall, right out of the box. Once you see your Canvas Wrap, you'll understand why these are one of the most popular trends in decor and display. Canvas wraps are also a great option if you have a room that received a lot of glare. The canvas won't reflect the light like a traditional glass or acrylic frame will.
