Profile In Patriotism

Arla M. Ruggles

Cherry Creek-Ely_NV, United States

Artist's Description

I found this 45-star American flag in an old shed. The loose weave of the fabric indicates it was probably a parade flag, or souvenir, and would date to 1912 or earlier.
The flag has a new home more befitting; framed and proudly displayed on the wall of my gallery.
I did not realize while setting up the shot, that the angle and the light had created a silhouette profile of President Abraham Lincoln.
