The Steps to Creating the Green Man, Dagda
STEP 1: The Gorgeous Green Man, also known as the Dagda, is in the process of being assembled into a stained glass window by an artisan from Italy's Piedmont, Pierangelo Tosi. In this photo, the glass has been cut and pieced together in a frame. To the right, we see the tools used to achieve this task. Dagda photos courtesy of Pierangelo Tosi who is also a photographer.
STEP 2: This step is also known as the welding step. Note the tools to the right. Pierangelo Tosi meticulously welds all the pieces with the utmost care and attention to perfection. Such craftsmanship is not easily found as it is in Tosi's art studio!
STEP 3: Here we see the patina along with the paintbrush used to achieve magnificent results. Pierangelo Tosi has also restored antique Italian murals so he pays a lot of attention to detail, even at the patina stage.
