Defendant George Zimmerman arrives for his murder trial in Semimole circuit court July 10, 2013 in Sanford, Florida.

The oil painting George Zimmerman put up for sale on eBay last week is officially off the market. After bidding closed Saturday, the artwork fetched a cool $100,099.99.

Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volunteer, who was acquitted in the high-profile death of Trayvon Martin, first listed his painting Monday at a starting price of $0.99. The 18-by-24 inch painting depicts the American flag in several shades of blue, and features the words “God, One Nation, with Liberty and Justice for All.”

In the listing, Zimmerman offered the following statement:

First hand painted artwork by me, George Zimmerman. Everyone has been asking what I have been doing with myself. I found a creative, way to express myself, my emotions and the symbols that represent my experiences. My art work allows me to reflect, providing a therapeutic outlet and allows me to remain indoors 🙂 I hope you enjoy owning this piece as much as I enjoyed creating it. Your friend, George Zimmerman

The winning bidder has not yet been disclosed, but Zimmerman promised to hand-deliver the painting within the continental U.S.
