A diptych (play /ˈdɪptɪk/; from the Greek δίπτυχον,[1] di “two” + ptychē “fold”) is any object with two flat plates attached at a hinge.

This awesome drawing/print is a limited edition available on etsy

Some modern artists have used the term in the title of works consisting of two paintings never actually connected, but intended to be hung close together as a pair, such as Pittsburgher Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Diptych (1962)- a modern pop culture icon.
