Probably not. If you have 4 inches available total, that's only two inches per side, and that's about 1 3/4 inches of visible mat since the lip of the moulding obscures some of it. And that's pretty thin for something this big.

Mine was done in a 24 x 36 and looks fine

Did a little research this PM after the drop ... not sure if this helps or not.

"To Harrow A Naif"

Harrow – An implement for breaking up and smoothing out the surface of the soil.

Naif – A naive or inexperienced person

Aside - Naïf Art is conceived and produced by artist with no specific academic preparation, and without the “obligation” of having to use elaborate techniques and conventional thematic and chromatic approaches in the work they execute. This does not mean that they do not study and perfect, in a self-taught and experimental manner, the development of their works, and certainly does not imply that their quality is inferior. Artistic capacity is an innate gift in human beings, and there are no techniques, rules or dogmas that restrict its quality or withdraw its value, when it truly exists.

Converge "Aimless Arrow" lyrics:

To live the life you want
You've abandoned those in need
A necessary casualty
Or so you believe
Your wake will always travel
And well up in the eyes
Of those that you sacrificed
In order to survive

I'm that aimless arrow
Lost from my very start
Violence without purpose
Born of broken hearts
No one will ever guide me
As I sail through the air
Now I just bring sadness
In those who choose to care

I know the tears they're weeping
And the damage they will take
It's the curse of restlessness
And the weight of your mistakes
They are those that love you
And those that need you more
Then the sense gravity
Banging down your door

I'm that aimless arrow
Lost from my very start
Violence without purpose
Born of broken hearts
No one will ever guide me
As I sail through the air
Now I just bring sadness
In those who choose to care

Aimless arrow
Aimless arrow
Aimless arrow
Lost from the start

Indeed it does! Glad to hear, since it's so much simpler to buy a nice 24x36 than get a custom.

Yeah boy!

I love it but I would love it more with a few little blood droplets on it. :twisted:

If I can't have a Mogwai, I might have to try for a blood doodle on this. :P

It's the chop for Black Osprey in Japanese, first used on the Converge Japan 2007 tour print.
