The first one of these I had sold in a flash: Then my picker came back to me and said, “Oh, you liked that? You want another one?” This second piece has the identical illustration and is from the same family, but for a different person.

It’s a memorial for a loved one who died and enrollment certificate for the Purgatorian Society. This is a Roman Catholic organization that aims to help souls stuck in purgatory (a concept unique to Catholics) through prayer. Although the illustration looks like hell, the flames actually denote purgatory. Makes you wonder what hell looks like in that case?

Beautifully hand stenciled with outstanding graphics in its original frame. Refer to photos for size.
