    This original oil on canvas (25" X 25") was painted in Sinjar Iraq after the fall of Baghdad in early 2003.

    The artist was a former Saddam mural painter and copied a photograph that was snapped in Baghdad.

    The artist refused to sign this painting as it had Saddam's image.

    I have a souvenir helmet that the same artist painted on Collectors Weekly as well.

    Reproduction of this image in any form is not authorized.
