A very unique piece of professionally framed art, I belive the technique to be a tracing or a transfer etching of a granite marker in southern virginia for Stonewall Jackson's amputated arm. Some history I found from and I quote... "In a small family cemetery on the Ellwood plantation, located on the eastern edge of Orange County, Va., stands a simple granite marker. It is the only marker in the cemetery, but it does not memorial�ize any of the family burials there. Carved into the face of the stone is "Arm of Stonewall Jackson, May 3, 1863." There is a picture of the actual marker in the top right corner, there is a burgundy mat board around the art. On a piece of white paper there are light pink water colors and tan water colors. The main part, "Arm of Stonewall Jackson May, 3 1863" seems to have been copied directly from through a trace or transfer etch style using red pastels. Almost haunting yet a very beautiful piece. The frame is 18 3/4" x 14 3/4". There is wire for hanging going length wise and a two small puncture holes on the back. A sticker for the business that framed this particular piece is also on the back, "FastFrame Expert Picture Framing" TERMS OF SALE
