Description: Artist: ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) Size: 11 3/4 x 16 1/2 in./29.8 x 41.8 cm Reissuing Mucha's 1907 design in cool sepia tones, this is an official life insurance document (text on verso). The woman in the image is Slavia, the personification of the Slavic people of Eastern Europe, much in the way Uncle Sam is to the United States ... [She] holds a ring in her hand which symbolizes unity ... and there are two stylized peace doves on the arm rests of the hidden throne she is sitting on; but just in case, she also has a sword in her lap, the message being that the Slav is peaceful by nature but will fight when attacked" (Rennert/Weill, p. 322). This comes in the original vinyl envelope also containing the original insurance certificate.
