Iwo Jima is made out of pine would and is woodcarved by James Neill of Ozark, Missouri.
It is famous as the setting of the February–March 1945 Battle of Iwo Jima between the United States and the Empire of Japan during World War II. The island grew in recognition in the west when the iconic photograph Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima was taken during the battle. The U.S. occupied Iwo Jima until 1968, when it was returned to Japan.
My Dad was in the Navy medical Corps and saw the real
raising of the American Flag at Iwo Jima. So as you can image, this image
has a special significance to me.
The carving is painted with acrylic paints and stained.
It's size is 24" by 24" and one inch thick.
