One of the most famous images ever taken is photographer Malcolm Browne's photo of Buddhist monk Thích Qu?ng Ð?c lighting himself on fire in protest. A truly iconic work of art, this image remains as important today as it was when it was first published over fifty years ago! The offered photo dates from 1963 and is one of the few vintage examples we have ever handled from the turbulent decade. A spectacular beauty in fine condition that presents with impressive clarity, this is encapsulated by PSA as a Type 1 and is the only such example we have ever handled in person! Condition and quality are both outstanding and this is an investment quality image in fantastic shape. Photo also comes with a full LOA from PSA as well. You will likely not see another of these for years!
