    Dave Gibbons Watchmen #11 "A Tropical Garden Seen Through a Small Hole in the Snow" Cover Re-Creation/Replacement Original Art (DC, late 1980s/early 1990s). "My name is Ozymandias, king of kings; look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!" -- "Ozymandias" by Percy Bysshe Shelley. Note that the shape of the hole in the snow matches that of the blood spatter on the Comedian's badge, as seen in the opening image of Chapter I. The penultimate image of the chapter also echoes this shape. Unlike the other eleven Watchmen covers Heritage has offered, this artwork is a re-creation replacement that Dave Gibbons drew in the late '80s or early '90s, as the actual original artwork used for the published version of the comic book cover was either lost or destroyed by the publisher and not returned to Gibbons after the comic was printed. This cover for the eleventh chapter, "Look on my Works, Ye Mighty," has an image area of 10" x 15", and the art is in Excellent condition. From the Shamus Modern Masterworks Collection.
