He is painted in oil paint on wood panel that is 10 x 10", the panel will need to be framed in order to hang it on the wall. Your local framer should be able to help you select a frame to suit your home. If you wish for me to arrange framing then select the framed option. The frames I prefer are rustic wooden frames that are custom made, you will need to allow 2-3 weeks for the frames to be made and shipped to me for framing.
