The Gold Bug

Mixed Media on Canvas

 
 

While serving in South Carolina, Edger Allen Poe wrote his story named "The Gold Bug". The pages of that story were ripped out and glued under a monumental painting of Ruple's great grandmother's golden Bee broach. This piece is a commentary on historic importance in the south and how family sometimes is more important than famous events.
