Piece description from the artist
John in Lennon is one of my favorite people ever. Ever… He was such a brave and honest artist that everything he did seemed to have a deeper, more profound meaning to it. And I especially admire him for his strong activist stance against war & for human rights everywhere… Imagine that.
