    ***BRINGER OF LIGHT DELUXE EDITION + 2 LARGE PAINTINGS***
    You get 1 of my best paintings (see the left side) on loose canvas, as well as a one of a kind custom painting of your choice up to 30"x40" on loose canvas, and your sculptures: Large Sisyphus sculpture( 17.5" tall, 11.38" wide and 14.49" deep) made out of Hydrostone, And one made out of Cold-Cast Bronze with the boulder made of a transluscent resin with LED lights inside.

    Cold Cast Bronze is when instead of melting bronze at 2,000 degrees in a foundry, you mix very finely ground up bronze powder with resins. So it looks and feels like a traditional bronze sculpture, but is slightly easier to make- hence the $3,000 savings in cost.
    This work of art will not only look stunning wherever you put it, but will also set the mood, and start conversations. You also get a pair of medium hydrostone Sisyphus sculptures. You get 8 stickers, a poster, and the $15, $5, $1 gifts - and 4 small HydroStone Sisyphus sculptures.
