A characteristic cartoon self-portrait by John Lennon with the sun shining behind a pyramid, signed and inscribed to Hilary Gerrard: "To Hillary with love as per! John".

Hilary Gerrard (1933-2023) served as business manager to Ringo Starr from the 1970s onwards. This drawing may well have been executed during, or been inspired by, John and Yoko's 1977 trip to Egypt, where they intended to dig for buried treasures. Yoko Ono's fascination for the cultures of ancient Egypt is also reflected by her 1973 LP release "Feeling The Space" together with the "Plastic Ono Band".
