Last Portrait of Heath Ledger

Weeks before his death, Heath Ledger traveled home to Australia, and agreed to let artist Vincent Fantauzzo paint a portrait of him.

Ironically, the picture is about death. Many are saying Heath's depression is eminent in this painting, while many say it was part of the artist's vision.

Fantauzzo
explains, "It was about how we all have different consciences and voices
in our head that tell us what to do and how to react. They're not good or
bad, they're just voices that we hear, telling us how to behave. That's what the other figures are in the painting."
