Brothers Tocci (c1880s) Classic show poster art printed on wood.  

Art: Giacomo and Giovanni Battista Tocci were two-headed conjoined twins born in Locana, Italy between 1875 and 1877 on either July or October 4. Their mother Maria Luigia Mezzanrosa was 19 years old; she had an easy time with the birth as they were rather small. They were delivered normally, with one head appearing first, the other head and torso second, and the pelvis and legs third. The one on their right was named Giovanni Battista, and the one on their left Giacomo. They had one umbilical cord and one placenta. Their father Giovanni Tocci had a breakdown due to the appearance of his first-born sons and was put into a lunatic asylum until he recovered a month later.

The Woody  is made from ½ inch wood with two ¼ inch batons on the back to raise the art off the wall and picture hanging hardware is applied for easy hanging. This design format provides a traditional picture look by adding a deep dimension to feature the piece on the wall. 

The Woody offers a distinct advantage to printing art on paper. Wood is a natural stable medium, therefore it’s free of acids and other chemicals that will cause water marking, staining, fading and deterioration from light. Modern UV inks will retain their color properties for decades and when printed on wood will age beautifully thus creating additional value. It not only makes a great addition to your home, it’s also a one of a kind piece that will last a lifetime. 

All prints are made from original art and re-prints are sold by permission from the copyright owner. Art may show slight distress due to the age of the original art and factors from the wood.
