Dear Sir,

I am in possession of a work of art 24x24 oil on woodboard by a certain
J.Jacob. It is
entitled "La puissance du Grand Damballa" and I wish to sell it. However
I am having
one hell of a time finding anthing on Jacob. I have attached  a copy of
the painting and
maybe you can help or at least steer me in a direction.

Kind regards,
Gabrielle Shreiner
