Black Velvet Moses

About 10 years ago, I walked into the Salvation Army Thrift Store on Mercury Blvd. in Hampton VA and saw this painting near the kitchenware.

An El Greco-esque black velvet incarnation of Isaac Hayes as Black Moses.

Indeed, a painting of a photo (this one).

So the above are photos of a painting of a photo--recording one of the better moments in thrift store iconography.

Now that Isaac Hayes has passed away that is a real collectible.

I have this! The house we bought had this in one of the rooms. I just can't part with it.
