In July 1980 enroute to Hong Kong, the Acevedo
family stopped off in New Delhi for about 36 hours. On impulse,
Eric, David and Victor hired a car and took off to Agra to see the
Taj Mahal, which was a few hundred miles away. This graphite drawing,
called Rosey Pelican is named after an Indian Beer that they sampled
at a rest stop. The underlying image is after a photograph of Eric
and the driver.
The Taj was awesome, but the visit was bittersweet
as someone stole David's expensive Rollex watch from their hotel
room while they were gone. Later in 1989 Victor traded the picture
to artist Jan Ferguson for one of her works. Later she donated it
to Robert Fripp's Crafty Guitarist School in Virginia.
