Caged Tomato by Leslie Van Houten

This print from a wood cut, #1/21, by Leslie Van Houten is currently for sale on eBay.  It will be up for bid until May 8th unless someone gets it at the buy-now price of $5000., the starting bid is $2,500.  I bet a psychiatrist would have a field day interpreting the imagery on this piece by Leslie.

The price includes wood cut prints by other prisoners, too, as well as one by the prison instructor.

I am struck by how artistic some of the Family members actually are/were, whether it be drawing, writing, embroidery or music.  I can't say that all their endeavors are great works of art but they do show talent.
