One of the most iconic images in sports history. Rendered in oil. A moment forever emblazoned into the fabric of popular culture.
Ironically the cameraman seen between Ali's legs made the cameraman who captured this iconic image move to where this shot was taken from because he had seniority.
Hello, I am 53 years old and live on the outskirts of Detroit, Michigan. I grew up and have lived my entire life here. My education and formal training is in communication not the arts. Though I have always been told I have the ability to draw. Due to the seasonal nature of my job I have more spare time in the winter months and out of sheer boredom I decided to take a crack at painting. Over the last 4 years I have immersed myself in oil and the paintings you see here are the first steps in what I hope is a long and satisfying journey. Thanks for taking the time to visit my Vango sight and God Bless. Regards, Tony Elie
