Fall seven times and stand up eight. Japanese Proverb

"Fall seven times and stand up eight." Japanese Proverb

I found these WONDERFUL wood letterpress numbers used for billboard printing and took a view finder from and old Brownie camera and used it to frame up the quote. The letter measures at least 9" inches across. I also find that Briwax does a wonderful job of bringing out the wood's patina - especially on old type 'cause you can manage the application. In this case, I only wanted the 8 to be shiny - the rest of it needed the old ink from many uses.
