Hand-made SIGNED Greetings Card, designed - The Beatles] HARRISON, George (1943- - 1980. 
[Henley], n.d. [1980s]. - George Harrison's own Christmas card, given to his groundskeeper. Dimensions 7 x 5.1 inches approx. Portrait format. Privately manufactured from card, foil, paper and metallic paint with a ribbon and tassel. Chiffon material soldered beneath a die-cut 'sun' motif with a hand-written seasonal message in gold ink in a Gothic calligraphic style on textured red paper pasted within the card. George has inscribed below, in blue ballpoint; 'To Maurice, Sylvia and Family / love from George'. Additionally signed below by Olivia and Dhani Harrison. Fine condition. The solar card design clearly refers to Harrison's spiritual view of 'the sun'; the worship of the sun as a deity is an important part of Hindu religion, to which Harrison had converted and to which he introduced his fellow Beatles; he practised meditation, met several gurus, embraced traditional Indian music and his ashes were scattered in the Ganges in a private ceremony according to his Hindu beliefs. In 1969, Harrison wrote 'Here Comes the Sun', one of his best-known tracks, which reflected the continued influence of Indian classical music on his songwriting. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
