Dirk: Contemplate equine iconography.

Beautiful, isn't it? A piece of this quality deserves nothing less than the pride of place in my private collection. Am I being sincere about that? Who the fuck can even say. A parting gift from an old flame, it was given to one of my splinters in a distant timeline before ending up in my possession via lots of complicated shit that I don't wanna get into. This painting used to belong to one of the most powerful men in Earth's history, and now it belongs to one of the few people ever to hold him in the palm of their hand. It came with a note, which has since been misplaced. But I know the words by heart. "Dear Dirk, In memory of our precious time together. When you look at it, think of me, and be reminded that while we breathe, we Hope." -B.O.
