Releasing the Fighter Within…A Tribute to Muhammad Ali
Artist Curtis Derall Ferguson, pays tribute to Muhammad Ali in this painting for his style, grace, skill, and courage. Mr. Ferguson wanted to capture not just a fighter inside of the ring, but of a fighter – a man, who took on an entire country. Ali fought against the most powerful country in the world, the United States of America. The artist is not condoning overthrowing the government, but rather standing up for your religious beliefs in the face of danger, imprisonment and even death. Ali lost his entire fortune and was hated by many for not fighting in the Vietnam War. But, upon his death he had become one of America’s favorite sons. Based upon his life, a person truly can change his stars. This is one of 21 paintings in this series.
