This is a beautiful landscape painting from the most infamous convicted Mafia hitman alive Thomas "Tommy Karate" Pitera. One of only two Pitera paintings currently in existence, this painting is much larger (20 inches long, 16 inches high) than his one other painting, and much more skillfully crafted. The painting is signed "T. Pitera" in the corner, and has Tommy's thumb prints on the back. Comes with a photo hand signed in USP Allenwood where Pitera is serving a life sentence for running the largest known Mafia graveyard in New York history. A truly unique item, and a rare chance for you to own a piece of organized crime history. As of right now you will find no other Pitera paintings for sale anywhere, and items from far less well known organized crime figures have been known to become great collector items. The perfect gift for any Mafia buff! Tommy Pitera was the subject of the 2008 Phil Carlo book "Butcher: Anatomy of a Mafia Psychopath," and is the subject of an upcoming Hollywood film "Hunt." Joaquin Pheonix has been rumored to be playing Tommy Pitera in that film, and Nicholas Pileggi of "Goodfellas" and "Casino" fame has been picked to write the script. After the film is made the value of this painting is sure to skyrocket!
