About This Artwork: This is a portrait of the Blessed Four of Snyderton Rock, an ancient territory of Allentown, Pennsylvania. As it was formerly known in 4 million B.C., this is a fable that very few people know about, but I will let you in on it.

The Father was the king of the territory, but the Christened Moppet cared for him with the help of Bowling Pin Cat and Spring Bunny, who had magical powers to keep the Father alive. He would rule over the land for more than 100 years. It was a happy Monarchy until, low and behold, one single dinosaur was raised from the dead by the town�s warlock. That Tyrannosaurus Rex wiped everyone out and all that remained was this painting.
