Description
A color photographic print of the musician and artist Rammellzee. Pictured from the chest up Rammellzee wears a grey and black striped sweater under multiple layered jackets, one of leopard print fur. There are multiple silver chain necklaces with silver pendants around his neck along with a black bolo tie with silver ram's head clasp. He wears a pair of white futuristic goggles on his eyes, with another pair in red right above across his forehead, a yellow pair above that and another red pair on the top of his head, over a black fur hat. He is looking at the camera, posed in front of a white background. Under the image are two handwritten inscriptions in black ink: [Ramm - ell - zee] is at the bottom left corner and the photographer's signature [© George DuBose] is at the bottom right. There are no inscriptions on the back.
