    Description

    Boris Vallejo Red Sonja "The Ring of Ikribu" Paperback Novel Cover Painting Original Art (Ace Books, 1981). Red Sonja positively glows on this cover by the master painter Boris Vallejo! Her reds and golden tones make her pop off of the cool blue background. Originally created by Roy Thomas and Barry Smith, she was loosely based on Red Sonya (with a "y") of Rogatino from Robert E. Howard's 1934 short story "The Shadow of the Vulture," which was also the title of her first appearance in Conan the Barbarian #23. The oil painting measures 16.75" x 26.5" in its Plexiglas-fronted frame. There is very minor water damage to the matting in the bottom left corner, but not into the painting. In Excellent condition.
