Looking to add some nice Swiss fresh air to your room or office? Look no further - you're bound to fall in love with this beautiful fade-resistant canvas print of ''The Blacksmith’s Symbols''.

One can admire these strange,  rusty red drawings on the wall of an old building in the village of Vissoie. They depict the tools of a blacksmith and  bear the dates 1514,1580 and 1592. They decorate the entrance to a  forge where in past times the blacksmith would have plied his trade shoeing mules and fabricating the other necessary items of the day. The first time I saw this lovely arch and the surrounding « magical » symbols I had to draw it !  

Vissoie is still an important cross roads in the Val d’Anniviers, Switzerland but in times past was also an important centre for craft and trade.
