Eerie Mose Tolliver Painting

Mose Tolliver (d. 2006) is one of the best known of the Southern, self-taught, African-American artists. His work was included in the landmark 1982 show "Black Folk Art in America." One critic described Tolliver's paintings in the show as "sometimes nightmarish." I believe this image is called Dry Bones or Dry Bones Charlie, an x-ray view of man.
