Primary Source Description Unit 2
This panel has the name Michael Edward Ron Deau 1947-1989 written in black thin cursive in the middle of the panel above the rainbow and its slanted upward around the outsides of the rainbow. This rainbow is probably a foot in width and takes up a lot of the panel. Its the original colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. With the rainbow having the words Michael in it and the letters have a rainbow inside them, starting from the inside top of the letter with red and the inside bottom of the letter violet. The rainbow shines over a valley of mountains with a view of water and a orange railed “golden gate bridge”. Although inside the rainbow inside the “C” is a rainbow heart structured the same as the other inside letters. The landscape under the rainbow has mountains with dots and various different green colors. The water is in the middle of the two valleyed hills which makes it look like a valley. The rails on the bridge are all orange and the poles structuring the bridge are coming up out of the royal blue water. The bridge looks like a normal road path going across a straight bridge with the big orange rails making two triangle shapes on top of the road making it look bigger and higher, also looking like the golden gate bridge. The second valley with mountains in the bottom right corner has some white mountains and starts to lead into the woods where there are two trees. These trees are standing on a while platform that is sand and looks to have little specks all over it. These trees take up from the bottom to the top of the panel and have big reddish colored trunks with little white specks all over them. Half way up the trees have leaves coming out of them but they are big pine branches. These branches are green with lighter shades of green on the outside and have little white dots on them. Above this whole valley scene but still under the rainbow are also three white birds that are flying close together. These birds are shaped like lower-case “M’s”. Moving to the top left middle part of the panel are another three white birds that are flying together and they also have the same shape. On the left side of the panel is a big grey and red structure(image is blurry) that sits in front of the capital building. There are bushes in between the structures but the red monument has spikey looking tips to it while the grey one just have a long tip going up the center of it. There is also a black gate that is the entrance to all of these buildings. But in the background is a big white building looking like the United States capital and has black lines to define the structure of it. Under this structure in the bottom left corner says in small thin black cursive, ” For our life together we celebrate”. Next to this writing is a red man looking figure which i am unable to tell exactly what it is. The whole background of this panel is baby blue and makes the panel stand out.
