    Wow, that is amazing! I hate to mention this after 5 months of work, but it looks like the original image was flipped…. That banner should read “ANGOLA”.

    Of course, this means that is is correct in the block cut!

    However, it will be wrong in the final prints :(

    @andrew,

    I did not even notice that when I posted it – but, you seem to be correct. Perhaps it was intentional?

    @andrew
    the original image is correkt. Man holt the banner to the people, not to Obama. You see the backside of the banner. And …block cuts are always inverted..
    greetings from germany

    This artist might just become as famous as the artist of Hitler!

    Hitler? Really? Without facts or critical thinking, I guess that’s all your infantile mind has?! Here is something for you and your intellect, “What a Maroon” – Bugs Bunny.
