When a canvas is stretched ,its mounted onto a wooden skeleton frame just like in the image below. The staples are not visible and are present only on the on the rear side. The sides of the painting are painted so it can be hung as it is without a decorative frame. The painting does not need a hanging wire, the middle of the top stretcher bar can be hung onto a longer nail or screw, longer paintings can be hung with 2 screws or nails . We use the best fine wood for the frames. The frames are hand made by specialist carpenters and a lot more durable and resistent than stadard stretcher bars. Our frames always withstand shipping to far destinations and chnages in the enviorment. This kind of frame will last for a very long time.
