A large-format photograph of Ian Burdon in a pensive moment, taken in 1967 at his home in Wallsend, England, and printed to an overall image size of 18" x 15.5." Burden wanted to be photographed in a state of repentance, so Wright had him pose with a Bible. This exceptional image is the result of that collaboration. Also in the overall mount are autographs from Burdon and each of the Animals, a 7.5" x 8" piece of sheet music for "House of the Rising Sun," and two 4" x 4" contact prints of the Animals and their fans upon the band's return to Newcastle after their first US tour in 1964. In Excellent condition, matted to an overall size of 24" x 30".
