I'm going to just copy paste the entire eBay auction, so that when it ends and is envetually archived there is still the evidence of it here. Perhaps he is immortal, or perhaps he was part of Project Pegasus like Andrew D. Basiago
(The Thanatos Archive watermark is not on the original image)Original c.1870 carte de visite showing a man who looks exactly likeNicolas Cage. Personally, I believe it's him and that he is some sort of
walking undead / vampire, et cetera, who quickens / reinvents
himself once every 75 years or so. 150 years from now, he might
be a politician, the leader of a cult, or a talk show host.This is not a trick photo of any kind and has not been manipulated
in Photoshop or any other graphics program. It's an original photo
of a man who lived in Bristol, TN sometime around the Civil War.
For the many of you insisting that this is a Photoshop manipulation:
Any serious potential buyer will be allowed to have a photo expert
of their choice examine the original photograph before any money
I've had a lot of questions asking where I purchased this. As followers
of my website know, I collect antique memorial photography -images of dead people - from the 1800s. This photo was found in
the very back of album that contained an unusual number of
Civil War era death portraits (which is why I purchased it). All of
the other people in the album, living and dead, were identifiedby name - this man was not.
Photographer is Professor G.B. Smith. A contact of mine forwarded
this interesting article (link) about the photographer, Smith. Turns
out he was a confederate Civil War prisoner of war photographer.
Guaranteed to be an original 1860s-70s photograph and not
a modern reproduction, copy or photo manipulation.4" x 2.5".
Unevenly trimmed on all sides.
