.A remarkable and strikingly beautiful his- torical, patriotic artifact has been donated to AMERICAN FREE PRESS with the specif- ic request that AFP put the item up for auction in order to help raise much-needed funds for AFP’s continuing efforts.
The relic in
question is a large-sized reproduction of the famous script of the Declaration of Indepen- dence (including the signatures of the Founding Fathers).
But what makes this piece of art so unique and rare is that it has been executed on smoky black glass—a solid square display of 29 inches by 29 inches, approximately 0.25 inches thick.
The text is in gold and while the glass itself is dark, it is not opaque; rather, it is translucent, mean- ing that the artwork can be lighted from behind for a truly stunning display.
But even without a light behind it, simply affixed to a wall (framed or not) the Declaration is a visual masterpiece, beyond any question.
The photograph here doesn’t do justice to this art- work. You have to see it to really appreciate how beautiful it is. The person who acquired it (and donated it toAFP) said: “I knew the moment I saw it that it was an ideal item to donate to AFP and that somewhere out there was an AFP supporter who would like to bid on the item.”
This would be a perfect display for your foyer, your den, your living room—wherever you want to place a fantastic work of art. And considering the nature of the subject, it’s tailor-made for real patriots who value America’s founding document.
Or, why not consider it as a gift for a local high school or other educational institution, or even a church or civic organization? What better way to highlight America’s heritage and encourage careful study of our national tradition in favor of freedom?
And, yes, if you would like to bid on it and even donate it to AFP for display at AFP headquarters, you can do that as well!
There are multiple ways that this treasure can be displayed and we will leave that up to the winner.
You will search far and wide to find anything sim- ilar. This is not a commemorative trinket that you would find in a souvenir shop.
Searching the Internet, we were able to find one other example similar to this. It was etched by a prominent artist initially commissioned to do so by a museum. However, it was ultimately sold to a law firm at a charity auction in Los Angeles for $5,000.
If you’d like to see the Internet reference we’ve mentioned, there is a video on youtube.com with a written story accompanying it at: http//www.you tube.com/watch?v=CFFUm3L1Joc.
On the video there are several passing views of the Declaration which indeed appear to be virtually identical to the one we are making available.
And, for the record, although we’ve been unable to trace the origins of the item we’re auctioning, it is entirely possible that ours is the one auctioned in LA.
AFP will ship the item, solidly packaged and secured, to the winning bidder as is.
The starting minimum bid will be $500. The final deadline for participation in the auction will be August 1, so please submit your bid as soon as possible.
To participate in the auction, fill out the coupon below or send a piece of paper including your name and address, contact number and email (optional) to the address listed below.
