Edward "Ned" Kelly, 6/11/1855 - 11/11/1880, considered to be merely a cold-blooded cop killer, others consider him to be a folk hero and symbol of Irish Australian resistance against the Anglo-Australian ruling class. After an incident at his home, police searched for him in the bush. After killing 3 policemen, the colony proclaimed Kelly a wanted outlaws. Kelly was captured on 6/28/1880, convicted of murder and hanged. This picture was taken the day before his execution.

In this full-length study, Ned holds the cord attached to his leg irons to disguise the withering of his wounded left arm and rests a fist on his hip to mask a crippled hand.
