This is the description that was sent in with the pan:
'Timeless Dahlonega Days'
Sepia toned oil painting of the Dahlonega Gold Museum State Historic Site
This depiction of the Dahlonega Gold Museum is painted on a vintage metal gold pan from Crisson Gold Mine. Celebrating the Museum’s 50th Anniversary as a State Historic Site the commemorative, one of a kind, gold pan was inspired by the antique photographs of Dahlonega’s mining past. Created in the warm tones of ages past the painting draws the viewer into a timeless glimpse of the town’s center. You can almost hear the bustle of festival or perhaps the soft clip clop of a horse trotting by.
The local artist, Nicole Angell, has lived here since 2010 and is an active volunteer at the museum. She used a 12 inch vintage metal gold pan as the base for the painting. The well-used pan has been handled by hundreds of visitors to our local gold mine. After removing the rust from the intended painting region, Nicole carefully detailed the Gold Museum onto the center of the pan. The rest of the pan has retained its’ well earned patina.
Even better it went for $350.
