The Rise Above Tee

$34.95

Circa 165 AD, at the height of the Antonine Plague, Emperor Marcus Aurelius famously remained in Rome through the longest period of hopelessness, death and famine in 900 years. Through these trying times, Marcus Aurelius lost several young children and most of his fortune but continued to stand with Rome, demonstrating that he did not value his safety more than his  responsibility, ultimately giving them the hope needed to rise above the darkness.

For this piece, we chose Jules-Élie Delaunay’s 1869 painting, “The Plague in Rome” - for it’s powerful depiction of plague-stricken figures lying in torment in the streets while a good angel commands the angel of death to strike with his spear the homes where the plague will enter.  
Black roses are intertwined with our logo on the back, signifying healing and rebirth, as we as humans will experience as we evolve past the current situation.  Right sleeve says "Death smiles at us all" over orange AB. Right Sleeve says "All we can do is smile back" over black on black rose.

Each tee is 100% cotton and features an athletic fit.

*Model is 5’11” 180lbs and is wearing a size Large.
