A dated miniature 1888 Odd Fellows painting, less than an two inches square. The triple link chain (3/4" long) refers to friendship, love and truth. The purple tent (1" tall) refers to the encampment.
One notable Odd Fellow member is Al Franken (International Order of Odd Fellows Manchester Unity) who is currently embroiled in an election dispute with bad loser Norm Coleman. As Franken should and will be seated soon enough, Coleman will thus become the only national politician who has lost an election to both a professional wrestler AND a professional comedian.
