ORLANDO, Fla. -

Artwork reportedly created by George Zimmerman is attracting bids of more than $100,000 on eBay.

A canvas painting depicting a U.S. flag in shades of blue, with the words "God, One Nation, with Liberty and Justice for All," continued to be listed on the website Wednesday by a user called "therealgeorgez." A picture depicts Zimmerman holding the artwork. The auction started Monday and is set to end Saturday.

Neither the artwork's authenticity nor the bids could be confirmed by The Associated Press. A spokesman said eBay doesn't disclose users' personal information but that the company reviews reports of inauthenticity. Messages sent to the seller weren't returned.

Zimmerman was acquitted in July in the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin. Last week, prosecutors said they wouldn't file domestic violence charges against Zimmerman for an incident at the Florida house he shared with his girlfriend.
