19th century Rabbit Balancing Portrait!!!

Now here's something you don't see everyday! An original drawing of a young boy with his two pet rabbits balanced on his shoulders. As you can see, the artist modeled this portrait after the accompanying tintype while taking a few liberties here and there with the clothing and hair. Tender, but also pretty bizarre!

Yeah, I definitely like the photo more than the drawing. Just great first that they were able to do the shot and second, that these 2 bunnies were probably the most important possessions that he had.

BTW: Love your latest paintings Steve!
