NEON Chris Consani's GAME OF FATE - $130 (Littlestown PA)

1234
EXTREMELY RARE! THREE STOOGES in Chris Consani's GAME OF FATE - framed with neon.
Works, very clean, very good condition, from pet/smoke free home. Awesome collectible artwork.

You will never see another one like this. Made in USA, Maryland shop sticker on back. It is custom made by a professional shop and impossible to find. In fact this is a the only one with the Three Stooges and 2 color neon work like this I have ever seen. The print itself was pulled from sale due to copyright issues with the Three Stooges being used in the painting...this one got out into the wild and with custom NEON tubes.

32" x 24" (measured with frame).
Willing to barter, what do you have?

$130 cash in person. Local public pick up (I can meet in Hanover, Gettysburg, Littlestown, PA, Westminster MD).

Email me your name and contact info if interested.
Will not respond to "is it still available emails".

Internet History research found:

This framed artwork poster features a painting by Chris Consani. This is the original version featuring The Three Stooges. Due to copyright infringement, this edition was pulled from shelves and no longer able to be sold. The Three Stooges were replaced with Elvis and the Elvis version is still being printed today. This poster is *very* hard to find and has become a collector's piece. Chris Consani hid a lot of hints in his artwork and many associated with the Three Stooges can be found hidden in this print including but not limited to:

The members of the three stooges birthdates can be found hidden above the pool tables.

The famous Three Stooges "nyuk nyuk nyuk" can be found in the light on the ceiling.

The cue dice features the sayings "Niagra Falls" and "Slowly I Turned" which are sayings from a Three Stooges skit titled "Slowly I Turn".

A reference to "Shemp", a heckler of the stooges and Moe Howard's brother.

AND MANY MORE!!

What do the numbers in Chris Consani Game of Fate mean?

They are birth and death dates for the following people. The original painting was with the Three Stooges where Elvis now stands holding the cue ball. The Pool Table has a plaque stating "Healy and Son" with numbers "10196" above it. This is a reference to the man who created the Three Stooges, Ted Healy who was born on 10 -1 -1896.

Ted Healy OCTOBER 1, 1896 - DECEMBER 21, 1937; (Photo on the back wall) Curley Howard October 22, 1903-January 18, 1952; Shemp Howard March 17, 1895 - November 23, 1955; Larry Fine October 5, 1902-January 24, 1975; Moe Howard June 19, 1897 - May 4, 1975; Joe Besser August 12, 1907 - March 1, 1988 Joe DeRita July 12, 1909 - July 3, 1993; Marilyn Monroe June 1, 1926(1926-06-01) - August 5, 1962(1962-08-05); James Dean February 8, 1931 - September 30, 1955; Humphrey Bogart December 25, 1899 - January 14, 1957

Why did Chris Consani call his poster Game Of Fate?

Bogart was 57 when he died --not exactly "young"-- and his "highest artistic point" was in the 1940's. It is commonly believed that Consani called his poster the Game of Fate because each of the figures (Monroe, Presley, Dean, and Bogart) experienced a great deal of success followed by great tragedy. Monroe died of a drug overdose at the age of 36. Dean died in a car crash when he was only 24. Presley's stellar career took a nose dive in the 1960s and 70s and finally came to a crashing halt when he died at 42. Although Bogart did die at the relatively old age of 57, he struggled with cancer of the esophagus during the last few years of his life.
