Technically not mine- still my grail as far as what's in my possession...

Figure it's appropriate to post this here since this one is my personal crown jewel of my collection! Never thought I'd own it, an opportunity came up, suffered through weeks of complaining by my wife, overall well worth it ;)

Certainly not the most expensive print I own, but far and away my favorite.

This might surprise those who know a bit about my collection, but this Jerome Mesnager OG on a coffee sack from Kenya is my grail. Other threads have asked if there were a fire, which piece in your collection would you take out of the house first. For me, the Mesnager is that piece. I have dozens of OGs in my collection, and some took years to track down and cost many thousands of dollars, but when push comes to shove, my grail was acquired in an eBay auction (eBay France) and cost less than a thousand dollars shipped. It is framed so that it appears to float on the wall. My local gallery sewed the sack on a glass rod using high test fish line, and suspended the piece between a plexiglass rear and a museum glass front. It sits on a wall in the kitchen with a Herakut OG on wood on one side and a Phil Frost OG on the other, and for me it steals the show.

Wow, you paint quite the mental image. I've always wondered what your avatar was. I'd love to see a pic of that framed up if you are so inclined. Completely understand if not.

Cheers!

What a piece of fudge Dracula. I mean there's not even a title block on it anywhere, how am I supposed to know what movie it's from?







Congrats man.
