nearly finished work for the upcoming "Skulls and Revolution" exhibition at Wall Eye Gallery. This piece consists of an exact replica of Jasper Johns "Three Flags".

The blue color field of the Ame...rican flag is substituted with the flag of Mexico (1934 - 1968) in which the eagle is substituted with the pirate Jolly Roger flag.
