Traditional Catholic art gains a compelling new medium in gallery wrap canvas. Canvases featuring this modern art trend combine special printing technology and the technical skill of our Steubenville craftsmen to carefully wrap and tuck the canvas around the back of a 3/4" thick engineered wood mount. This method creates an impressive visual display with a faux 3D effect as the image continues around all visible sides of the mount. The canvas is free of visible staples or tacks and stands alone with no need for a frame. Each canvas hangs with a wire in the back and has an attractive satin-matte finish.
Our Mary Undoer of Knots Gallery Wrapped Canvas is a once obscure, 300 year-old painting that has become the fastest growing Marian devotion in the world today. Known in her German homeland as "Maria Knotenlöserin," this beautiful sacred image by Catholic master painter Johann Schmidtner was inspired by a real German family's story of marital disunity, struggle, intercession, and powerful reconciliation. Discovered and then expanded into a Marian devotion in the 1980's by then-Father Jorge Mario Bergoglio, "Mary, Undoer of Knots" is a favorite devotion of Pope Francis himself, and continues to spread throughout the world due to his influence.
Our image of the original "Mary, Undoer of Knots" has undergone professional digital restoration to remove the effects of 300 years of aging and candle-smoke.
A simple, neat, and beautiful way to adorn your home, office, or parish - or even to give as a gift to a friend, relative, or priest.
