Family Tree by Heraldic Artist Neil Bromley

I've recently had the honour of photographing a masterpiece of heraldic art and calligraphy by Devon artist Neil Bromley he can also be found on Facebook

This is a family tree commission, it took a colossal 1,800 hours of work over 4 years to complete, it's a huge 5' x 4' in size on stretched vellum, incredibly detailed and finished in 23 carat gold leaf.

The overall photo really doesn't do it justice at computer screen size, but I photographed it using my Nikon D800 so the images could print at A2 in size or even larger via giclee. To try to give a better idea of the quality and detail I've also shown some cropped areas and close ups.
