Featuring the mission insignia of three flying horses flying through the sky, 4 inches in diameter, printed on beta cloth and flown on the mission. Framed beneath: Original lithograph, "Steeds of Apollo," 1981, 17 x 24 inches, signed and numbered by the artist (#485/500), one of 100 signed by all three mission astronauts, JAMES LOVELL, JACK SWIGERT, AND FRED HAISE. With certificate of authenticity issued by James Irwin. Framed and matted. Provenance: Purchased directly from James Irwin. FINE PRESENTATION from Jim Irwin of a flown beta cloth insignia, and the limited signed issue of the lithograph by Lumen Martin Winter, based on his original mural that served as the inspiration for the insignia's design. The mural was originally painted in 1969 in the St. Regis Hotel in New York, where it was discovered by Lovell and crew while staying there, and they approached the artist to have him create an emblem based on the mural. The original mural now hangs in the lobby of the James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center. According to Lovell, during the filming of the movie Apollo 13, it just happened to surface at an auction in Los Angeles, where unbeknownst to him it was purchased by a grateful Tom Hanks, and sent as a gift to Chicago.
