A historical work of art by Jay C. Bakari that is a tribute to the Pharoah Ramesses II. He is often regarded as the greatest, most celebrated, and most powerful Pharaoh known after his rule as the Great Ancestor. This open edition lithograph measures 18x13 inches.
Born in Pittsburgh, Jay began his formal art education in high school at Forbes Road Vocational East. From there he attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Ivy School of Art, and finally transferred from Ivy to The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. He ran out of money before he completed his degree, however, and was forced to continue the development of his skills while supporting himself with a day job and utilizing the resources of local libraries.
