... on Ebay, this is what you are most likely getting – the work of a dozen or so poor Chinese assembly-line workers. It will never escalate in value and you will probably never be able to resell it.  The old saying "You get what you pay for" applies in this case.  Buyer Beware: If it sounds too good to be true, it is. Get or ...

In either case, the canvas has more texture and dimension when it is embellished and looks more like an original. And both serigraphs and giclees can be embellished.
