CSS Container Div

I have a container div that has two children;
Sidebar- floats left (nav buttons)
Main - float right ( main content; extends below sidebar)

I would like to place an image in the lower right corner of the container div.  The bottom of the image would align with the bottom of the main div
My current code:
      #navPic {
      clear: both;
      margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
      }
This code puts the top of the image equal to the bottom of the text in the main div.  The result is that I have a lot of empty space below the main div.  Any suggestions?

The image has to be in the container div.  The image is already at the bottom left.  The problem is I need the bottom of the image to be even with the bottom of the content div.

I got it by adding another container div

      background: url(images/leftnavguitar.JPG) no-repeat bottom left;
      overflow: hidden;
      width: 100%
      height: 100%;
      margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px;

clear:both;
