A painting by George Zimmerman, whose fatal 2012 shooting of a black teenager triggered an outcry across the United States, sold for just over $100,000 on eBay.
The signed patriotic blue-hued portrayal of the Stars and Stripes flag is overlayed with the words "God, One Country, with Liberty and Justice for All" in typewriter font.
The artwork was the subject of 96 bids before finally going under the online hammer for $100,099.99 when bidding closed late Sunday.
Internet auctioneer eBay on Monday declined to provide any information about the successful bidder.
