Beautifully mounted on its wooden stand, this collectors-item statuette (#130208) features 3 robed members of the Choir created by Gilbert Young. It is new, still boxed, and never displayed. Remember your youth? Didn't these three sing in your church choir...? Each of the three is distinct and unique. While singing in their Royal Purple & Gold choir robes, with all their hearts, one member fans know how hot it can get up there and our 'friend' with the gray hair can even be seen 'hiding' the hymnal. Perhaps she missed choir rehearsal and doesn't know the words to the song (why let a small thing like not knowing the words stop you from singing...Just sneak up the hymnal...).-- Gilbert Young's fine art and poignant illustrations of Black life have earned him wide acclaim and international recognition. His extraordinary talent was evident at an early age, and he studied at the Cincinnati Art Academy and the University of Cincinnati. In addition to painting his own collection, he is Conservator and Director of the University of Cincinnati Fine Arts Collection. His objective as an artist is to "illustrate Black life as a positive form locked in holy matrimony with mankind." His unforgettable portrayal here is beautiful, and a worth piece for those who 'remember' and appreciate, and can smile at the memories...The Shipping Cost of $25.00 has been included in your discounted purchase price. NOTE: The item is new and boxed but there is an area on the sleeve of one of the robes (See photo detail) that appears to have been repainted. The beauty of the piece is unaffected. NOTE: This Oversize Item is Excluded from my Multi-Sale Discount Offer.
