The portrait was shown in public for the first time on Saturday, April 17, 2010, at the tribute dinner to Ann and Sasha at the Psychedelic Science in the 21st Century conference in San Jose, CA. Ann and Sasha and Alex signed the prints the day before. The painting entitled, "The Shulgin's and Their Alchemical Angels" portrays Sasha holding an MDMA molecule that has a fiery warm glow and angels wings. Anne touches the molecule and gazes into the light. Around them radiate molecular symbols, Sasha's "dirty pictures." Above them two flaming wings with eyes, bare the words "PIHKAL" on one and "TIHKAL" on the other. An alchemical flask hovers above Sasha's head with a symbolic "eye of the heart" angel inside the lab vessel. Ann and Sasha will receive an honorarium for signing the prints. The remaining proceeds will be divided between the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors (COSM, www.cosm.org) and the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS, www.maps.org). Proceeds to CoSM will go toward building the exhibition hall to display the CoSM art collection including the portrait and relic of Dr. Albert Hofmann and the original portrait of the Shulgin's. Proceeds to MAPS will go to the upcoming US MDMA/PTSD study to be conducted for veterans with PTSD, most from Iraq, Afghanistan and a few from Vietnam.
