The writing on the wall reads:
"In Oleum Veritas
Vincit Omnia Veritas."
which translates thus:
In oil (in this case, cod liver oil) there is truth,
truth conquers all.
The note depicted in the painting reads:
"I will tarry, this fool will stay
And let the Mariner set sails.
The knave turns fool that runs away;
The fool no knave, prevails."
Original oil on canvas: 36" by 24" The original painting is owned by Joey Kramer of the band, Aerosmith Image: copyright 1998 Patrick Pierson
