Kia ora from New Zealand. To cut a long story short yesterday I went to a house to look at and maybe purchase a velvet painting. Then the guy showed me a section wall from a bar in Tahiti where Leeteg once drank. He couldnt pay his bill so the guy got him to paint a lady ( called Mau Lili ) and Moorea on the wall its 4m x4m. Signed Leeteg and in great condition. Have you got any thoughts on what I should do with it?

4x4 meters? That's about 13x13 feet!

MDM, I read it as 4x4 ft. and I thought that was big. Meters? Wow?
Cheers

WOW! That is outstanding. From the story you told, it may have come from Quinn's bar where Leeteg hung out (see link below).

Wow, very nice! Pretty amazing find, I wonder how many examples there are of that kind of story with Leeteg. Enjoy it!
