A reproduction of the print done by S.J. Ferris of Washington and Lincoln ascending to heaven after their deaths, and becoming gods, or in this case god-like figures to the American people.
Based off of the 1865 albumen print, however there are angels in the heavenly light unlike the original print, and Lincoln's ear is visible unlike the original.
