A Ceramic Bowl Painted by Pryor Is Being Auctioned



A ceramic bowl painted by Richard Pryor is being auctioned on the Internet for an animal welfare organization

Richard Pryor has the ceramic bowl, which he painted by himself, auctioned on the Internet for an animal welfare organization. The late actor-comedian painted a self-portrait inside the bowl with the words, "Little Black Man in Big White World."

Pryor sent the bowl to the Geauga Humane Society weeks before his death on Dec. 10. The humane society later on offered to return the bowl to his wife, Jennifer, but she refused and instead suggested the group to use it to raise as much money as possible and endorsed the sale on the eBay auction Web site.

What makes the stuff even more precious is its side which has Pryor's signature and drawings of a martini glass, lips and a cigarette. By now, the bowl had received a top bid of $3,511.
