"Looking up at the Earth, I moved into my spacecraft's shadow to get a better view of our planet without squinting. Reaching up, I balance the Earth between my gloved thumb and forefinger. Our world, the whole Earth was safely cradled in my fingertips. At first, it may seem I've painted my right finger incorrectly, not pointing at the Earth. Not so. I have purposely painted it a little lower and to the right of the Earth due to the effect of the parallax. How small our Earth is in the infinite universe."--ALAN BEAN

Only from a moonwalker could such a point of view experience be related. Apollo enthusiasts will also note the details of Captain Bean's LMP Cuff Checklist are clearly identifiable in this 24" x 17" Fine Art Giclée Canvas. A quick look at his watch and reference to the checklist will let you know what activity Alan was engaged in when he took a moment to take in this view. Each "Our World at My Fingertips" is signed by Alan Bean.

We also have two of Alan Bean's original sketches for this painting. He originally called it "Our World in My Hands."
