    Mark Poole Magic: The Gathering Alpha Edition "Island Sanctuary" Card Painting Original Art (Wizards of the Coast, 1994). Here is a rare opportunity to own a painting from the Magic: The Gathering set that started it all, Alpha Edition. The painting was done for Island Sanctuary, or was it? This painting was initially done for 'Island #2' but was rejected because the images for land cards weren't meant to have anything on them that could be construed as a creature (to avoid confusion with creature cards)." However, the art was so good that they ended up creating a new card for it! A Certificate of Authenticity accompanies the painting from the artist, Mark Poole. The painting was created in mixed media, and is signed in the lower-left corner of the 7" x 5.75" image area. The painting has been framed to an overall size of 11.25" x 10". On the reverse side of the frame, you'll find the original receipt of purchase. In Excellent condition.
