Offered with the Copy #1 of Manson's CD is Manson's Original
Artwork that he drew in prison for this CD. The drawing measures
appx. 12"x18" and is drawn with crayon, using many
colors. At the bottom left corner of the artwork Manson has signed
his name, in ink, in full, adding the word "Scrash."
The artwork is extremely colorful and would make a wonderful
presentation when matted and framed.
During February 1995, one of Manson's two acoustic guitars that
was used to produce the songs in this album was being offered
for $30,000. The other guitar came back into his possession after
being kept for several years by prison officials.
