The World Famous Vanguard Limited Edition Sam Lyons Print

Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.
Anyone who's ever enjoyed the freedom of traveling across the open ocean will appreciate Sam Lyon's magnificent tribute to HM-14, the Helicopter Mine Countermeasures Squadron 14 of the US Navy. Nicknamed "the Vanguard," the squadron safeguards seafaring civilians from what lurks beneath the surface by locating, capturing and/or detonating hazardous naval mines used in warfare. In this 17" x 25" illustration, Lyons features one of HM-14's MH-53E Sea Dragon helicopters that is used in minesweeping ops. Those familiar with the heavy-lift rotorcraft will marvel at the artist's immensely impressive, insanely accurate depiction of the Sea Dragon. Everything from its exterior markings to its main rotor to the shape of its tail boom is right on the money. Art enthusiasts will also appreciate the profound effect of the image's bleak blue background. The monochromatic setting further illustrates the austere environment in which HM-14 operates, as well as the degree of danger the squadron faces on a routine basis.

This picture is available as both an Artist Proof (limited to 40) and a signed & numbered Limited Edition print (limited to 400). Both versions are printed on acid-free paper, utilize first-rate permanent inks, and include a Certificate of Authenticity. A powerful peek into the offshore operations of one of the US military's bravest units.
