Brush and pen ink on heavy paper, inspired by the book The Crock of Gold by James Stephens. The art works were executed in the 1920s and the originals measure 15 by 20 inches. This timeless classic book is a whimsical, satirical, and philosophical fairy tale for grownups that was first published in 1912 and remains in print today. The complete text of The Crock of Gold is available online or the book may be purchased from Amazon.
