This beautiful Anniversary Edition Giclée canvas is a faithful reproduction of the long ago sold out paper edition. Limited to no more than 50 copies worldwide, each is hand-signed and numbered by William S. Phillips.
The flight of the Enola Gay and the capture of the island of Iwo Jima, were two of the most significant events of World War II. William Phillips wanted, in some small way, to pay tribute to those who captured that island fortress even as he paid homage to the United States Army Air Forces and the crew of the Enola Gay for the mission. Both events hastened the end of the war and made the invasion of the Japanese homeland unnecessary.
