About this image

This image of the Carina Nebula shows a region of tremendous star birth and death 7,500 light years away from Earth. The nebula is home to Eta Carinae, one of the most massive stars in the universe, prone to unpredictable, violent outbursts.

ABOUT WALL MURALS:
Turn a wall in your home into a picture window on a panoramic view of the universe, complete with glittering stars and sweeping clouds of gas and dust. Wall murals are gallery-quality, detailed Hubble images.They can be printed as one image, or as a series of individual images clustered together to create a single picture. Astronomical wall murals can be costly to print but add awe-inspiring, dramatic impact to any d├ęcor.

PRINTING:
For best results, we strongly recommend that this black-and-white wall mural be printed at a professional photolab or photo store with expertise in black-and-white prints. Printing a black-and-white print with a color printer may result in a poor quality print. We also recommend that the lab use true black-and-white photographic paper for the highest quality print. Make sure the photo service you choose has the technical ability to produce the quality of print that you desire. For cost-saving purposes, we suggest testing your chosen photo service by ordering test prints before printing the entire mural.

Some online photolabs or photo stores may ask whether this image is copyrighted, since they are not allowed to print copyrighted material. You can point them to our Copyright page. The images used in these Wall Murals have no copyright restrictions.

FRAMING:
These images have been designed for narrow frames without mats. We recommend hanging the images 1/2" to 1" away from one another.
