This is a very special small painting done by artist and author Roger Bansemer . To our knowledge, it is the first painting that was ever painted of the Titanic on the spot where Titanic sank. It wasn't painted while on the bottom, but directly above the Titanic while Bansemer was on the research vessel Keldysh in August 2000.

The stamp in the upper left was the official stamp of the Mir I which included the names the pilot, copilot, the artist, the latitude, longitude, date, depth, etc.and was signed by the three that were onboard.
