Fallen Hero is a symbolic painting to commemorate Remembrance Sunday. Three high ranking poppies stand to attention against a cold November watery backdrop whilst several cadet poppies lower their heads, a mark of respect, as they gather round the broken stem of another fallen hero.

This painting was inspired by the following poem which I wrote just after the 9/11 tragedy...

BLAME
As the poison of man spreads across the land
so some find the power to fuel their own gain.
Preaching their bigoted righteous damnation
preying on the raw open wounds of the pain.

Stirring the emotions into a frenzy
till the anger rises and the hatred burns.
Blaming the difference in each ones nature
Man turns on man and the wheel of fate turns.

"You are a sinner!" the enlightened one preaches
"You made this happen - you're the root of this fight!
Now you must suffer for what you have started!
A tooth for a tooth and an eye for an eye!"

But I will stand strong under your accusations
and I will forgive you - for you need to learn.
No-one is perfect in this world of ignorance
and at the time of Salvation, you'll get your turn.

So remember when you preach from your ivory tower
as you prepare to dish out what you feel is due.
Whenever you point that accusing finger
there are three other fingers pointing back at you!

Hahnemühle Certificate of Authenticity

Serialised Numerical HologramThe Hahnemühle Certificate of Authenticity is designed to protect the security and exclusivity of each Limited Edition Print and reduce the risk of forgery. This is also the first step of 'Provenance' - where the future history of your Limited Edition Print begins.

As well as containing all the details of your Hand Embellished Limited Edition Print and being personally signed and dated by Tracie, each certificate has a serialised numerical hologram attached to it whilst an identical numerically serialised hologram is fixed directly to the back of the print itself. This combination assures that the Certificate of Authenticity relates directly to that particular print.

The certificates are manufactured to the strict standards and regulations of Europay and Clearstream, the world leaders in forgery resistant printing. The forgery resistant security characteristics found in this system are both visible and invisible in the forms of serial number, Guilloche with relief, rainbow-pressure, watermarks and a special UV signature.

An additional record for each certificate issued is also kept at the Hahnemühle offices and you will be supplied with the necessary information for you to confirm the registry of your print via the Hahnemühle on-line database.
