Genesis Manus Ululatus


ca. 522 B.C.

Attributed to Rom av.JC

This huge crater tells the story of the creation of the famous illustration “Manus Ululatus” by Jimus Phillipus (Jim Phillips). We recognize the artist, who sees a man almost drowning in a large crater, the man calls for help and only his hands and face are sticking out. This image inspires Jimus Phillipus who is then found in his studio, drawing the famous “Manus Ululatus”.

This is the first find of this scale, painted in honor of a strong symbol of ancient skateboarding. Contemporary researchers deduce that the first great skateboard illustrators were as respected and honored as famous sculptors or musicians.
