A small handwritten label came with this image. All it said is "Butcher on the day of his wedding". He sports a wonderful stovepipe hat and dress clothing peek from beneath his butcher's smock. The blood-like coloring added to the knife blade makes a dramatic but confusing statement. (Matt Isenburg)
