This beautifully hand painted glass holiday ornament was hand painted by a skilled artist using special narrow brushes and pointed sticks. The painting of the ornament begins when an artist first inserts a brush into the globe and carefully creates an outline of the image. The artist then begins the more difficult step of slowly filling in the colors. The entire hand painted process requires several days and the result a beautiful, unique collectible. The painting technique is known as reverse glass painting and is an art form found throughout Asia. Though the designs are similar, each ornament does possess its own unique handcrafted character. Each ornament comes in a collectible box.
