This apparently surreal image is actually a sunfish depicted with surprisingly accurate shape. Fante were fishing people who must have encountered one at some point and been startled enough to memorialize the event on a flag. Unknown artist, circa 1930s. Use of felt and the fringed of wool are unusual. Condition: Has been mounted on a custom made stretcher, with patches on the reverse face prior to mounting.
Measures 57 inches x 38. 145 cm x 97
