Suleiman broke centuries of tradition for Hürrem.

Harem rules dictated that concubines could only bear the sultan one son – to prevent feuds and rivalries among the sons as well as the mothers. Hürrem bore Suleiman 5 sons and a daughter.

What others have wondered

Why is this a print? Where’s the original?

This image is a digital artwork created on the computer, which means the original artwork is data sitting on a hard drive. It needs to be printed to bring it into the real world.

What’s a giclée print?

Giclée is a term used to refer to fine art prints made with long-life ink and paper. It means your print is gallery-quality and will last a lifetime.

For ink, I use genuine Epson high dynamic range ink – a high-quality ink that has a longevity of up to 200 years and produces sharp images with beautiful smooth tones. For papers, I chose 100% cotton rag fine art papers from Ilford. They’re a thick weight, have a clean matt surface, and are perfect for crisp detail and bright, vivid colours. And these fine art papers have no optical brighteners so colours last even longer.

What does a limited edition of 10 mean?

A limited edition of 10 means only 10 prints will ever be produced so it makes your print more exclusive. And, to authenticate your print and make it a one-off, I hand-sign and number each print with traditional graphite pencil.

It seems like every single picture tells not just a little story about Hürrem’s life but also conveys emotions she could feel during a particular period of her life.
