Framed Match Stick Cross mounted on Cardboard, Framed under glass and wired for hanging.
The Estate from where this was acquired explained that the owner's uncle and friends had spent time in prison and that they all made works of art and sculptures from wooden match sticks. In this example of Prison Art, the matches were glued to a cardboard surface, and framed under glass and wired.

The cardboard has some signs of crease or bend, but for the most part has remained flat in the frame. The wooden frame has some worn wood on the back, but the front and the edges of the frame are in very good condition with no chips or damage.

This is an exquisite example of Prison Art; the artist may be forgotten, but his or her inspired work lives on.
