"Goldtiger" order it today

just read Goldtiger, and a mistery in our family may have just been solved, for as long as i can remember a panel of original art had hung in my dads study, when I asked about the origin of the piece, I was told, "son, never meet your hero's" and that was that!

I think now (through the publication of goldtiger) I understand the origin of the piece and it my very well be the work of Antonio Barreti although their is no signature on the piece or it might be just some wannabe hack trying to promote him self through the genius of a master!

where to buy
