Ali paintings up for auction

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A piece of Muhammad Ali's legacy will be auctioned off this weekend.

Fifteen original paintings of the world-famous boxing icon were created for book illustrations. The pictures were used in his daughter, Maryum Ali's, children's book I Shook Up the World: The Incredible Life of Muhammad Ali.

The artist, Patrick H. Johnson, is famous for his paintings of the Champ.       

These paintings were never sold as prints, and now they're being sold by a Texas auction company.
