    I found this in my grandpas basement, and have been trying to find out how much it is worth. Here is an email from the artist himself about the bob marley burlap. Any info would be much appreciated.

    Hi Jodi, A company from Athens, Ohio named Sinbad, one of the first reggae record shops in the country sold these back in 1977, I think was around the time of the first printing. I worked for a company called Image Graphics from 1976 - 1987 as artist. I used a photograph taken by Phil Alloy (owner of Sinbad) and drew on top of it, and also did the type at the bottom. They were then screen printed on a large press and sold via Sinbad catalog or at his shop. We did (I think) 3 or 4 different wall hangings on burlap, some with the entire wailers band.
    Sinbad was the first company in the US to do tour t-shirts for Bob because it was too expensive for them to bring shirts up from Jamaica. I did a number of designs, backdrops, tour jackets, passes, etc. for Bob, Rita Marley and then the kids with the Melody Makers. We lost the contract in the early nineties after Bob had passed and the Melody Makers were signed to Island Records.
    I'm not sure how many are in existence, how many we printed, too far back for the 'ol brain cells. They are not being made anymore. Not sure of the value, but I imagine it to be worth $100-$500 bucks if you found the right person on ebay, maybe more, not sure with all the Marley stuff that is out there these days.

    There was a documentary made about Bob in the 80's (can't quite remember the name of it), but you can see the burlap hanging in Bob's window at 56 Hope Rd.), maybe the only time it shows up in direct connection with Bob.

    Hope that helps, let me know if you have more detailed or specific questions and I'll try and help, you can see a few of my designs at

      Paintings are breathtaking if it is prepared by an expert. Paintings or art is not an easy thing. To create living paintings the artist should have sharp thought and patience. A good artist makes the living form of their art. They prepare the piece of painting for displays or art gallery. Anybody can not paint like an expert. Art is a gift for the artist. Nobody can become an artist in one night. The beginning of the art is practice. The famous artist is made their place in the art world with their hard work. There are various types of artists are there. They are differentiated with a level of education or training. A highly valuable artist with a mastered technique is called fine art.
      A good painting has creativity, thought, feeling and also many aspects or situations which is happening in society. Painting can be natural or typical. The art base is included with various things like glass, wall, wood, paper, clay and many more. Different type of paintings is modified with the pain used, solubility and drying time.
      Fine artists use different ways to create valuable art. They are always thinking about new ideas and making new methods them-self for creating art. They can be using several ideas to make a good painting. Taking up painting as a hobby is not just an inventive type, it helps to stimulate creativity growth by practicing. Practice and focus allow the artist to learn the artistic skill in their own way. I am a writer at https://essayacademia.com custom essay writing service and I know that writing, reading, dancing are also an art. Reading and writing are also very helpful to the brain to be active all the time. Painting, reading, writing all are the brain exercise. I help to get stronger memory.
