Wearing a magnificent silk robe with an ermine lining, King Solomon kneels and makes an offering to a pagan idol. One of his wives appears to instruct him while several other concubines, lavishly dressed, stand behind. A group of men in elaborate headpieces and rich finery watch Solomon and the women from the left with displeasure, as if they know that Solomon's idol worship will eventually destroy his kingdom. The Temple of Jerusalem, which was erected under the King's reign, is under construction in the background.

Solomon was known for his proverbial wisdom and great wealth. In his later years he was drawn more and more to the pagan cults, which were thought to have been introduced into Israel by the women who came from neighboring kingdoms to join his large harem.

This subject was popular in Protestant countries in the 1600s because it reflected Protestant disapproval of the Catholic Church's use of religious imagery, a practice that Protestants viewed as idolatrous.

Product materials on offer:

For every fine art print we offer different materials & sizes. You can choose your your favorite size and material among the following options:

  • Canvas: A printed canvas, which should not be confused with a canvas painting, is a digital replica printed onto canvas. Canvas prints are relatively low in weight, meaning that it is easy and straightforward to hang your Canvas print without extra wall-mounts. A canvas print is suited for any type of wall.
  • Printed poster (canvas material): Our poster print is a printed flat canvas with a slightly roughened structure on the surface, which reminds the original version of the artwork. The poster print is designed for putting the art print with a customized frame. Please note, that depending on the absolute size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin between 2-6 cm around the print to facilitate the framing.
  • Aluminium dibond: Aluminium Dibond prints are prints on metal with an impressive depth effect. The Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is the perfect introduction to art reproductions made with alu. For the Aluminium Dibond option, we print your favorite artpiece on the surface of the aluminum material. The colors are luminous in the highest definition, the fine details are crisp, and you can feel the matte appearance of the art print surface.
  • Acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): A glossy acrylic glass print, which is often described as a print on plexiglass, transforms your favorite artwork into beautiful wall decoration and forms a good alternative option to canvas and aluminidum dibond fine art replicas. The artwork will be made with the help of modern UV printing machines. The result of this are vivid and impressive color tones. The great upside of a plexiglass print is that sharp contrasts and small details become more recognizeable with the help of the very subtle gradation.
