I have done a painting which I put together on two canvases. What is the name for such a painting where 2 canvases are used to produce one piece of art?

I think I will and make it huge, sort of a light and dark theme as they used to do in the old days or good and evil or something like that.
Should be a good project (might drive my girlfriend nuts having them hanging around for a long time though lol) ahh she'll get used to it lol.

Sorry can eat tonight I got that painting Ive been working on for 2 years still drying on the table lol. Hee hee paints everywhere (didn't mean to get it on the carpet lol )
Actually shes good that way so I'm lucky :)
