Imagine a world where the greatest New York baseball legends of all time come together for one epic lunch break. That's the world you'll find in this Limited Edition panoramic artwork design, "Lunch Atop An Empire"
This stunning masterpiece features 15 Bronx legends of the baseball diamond, each captured in their own unique way. From Babe Ruth sharing a hot dog with Lou Gehrig to Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio relaxing with a copy of "DUGOUT" magazine, this artwork is a must-have for any New York fan or sports memorabilia collector.
But what makes this artwork special is the magnificent attention to detail. Every aspect of the painting has been carefully considered, from the yellow safety vests that all of the Captains are wearing to the orange vest on Yogi Berra, a nod to his unique personality.
Here are just a few of the easter eggs you'll find in this artwork:
1. Billy Martin is holding up five fingers, symbolizing the five times he was fired as manager.
2. Reggie Jackson is wearing a "Mr. October" sash and holding a Manhattan drink, a reference to his famous quote that he was "the straw that stirred the drink" for the Bombers.
3. Thurman Munson, a fan favorite is wearing angel wings and a halo, a tribute to his tragic death in a plane crash that shook the nation.
4. Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth are sharing a hot dog, a reference to their famous friendship and the Bambino’s penchant for Coney Island Franks. The hash marks underneath Gehrig allude to his infamous hit streak, and the number 27 represents the team’s World Championships to date.
