|Ri Dong Ou has done a number of pop culture paintings about Western culture, and we happened to like this one, not only because I am a former Marine, but because it is well done and symbolizes mankind's quest to be free from tyranny, which is an ever present issue, in the world that we live in. It is done in a style that he has used in a number of his other pop culture paintings, making it have somewhat of a quality of a black and white photograph, but always with a twist. This one is done, mainly, in blues and grays with the American flag that the Marines are planting on Iwo Jima highlighted by being done in its natural red, white, and blue. Ou has done a nice job on this timeless picture of world history. It measures a very large 160 cm by 160 cm and will be dismantled and rolled in a tube for shipping.
