This piece was commissioned for an exhibition and has taken on a life of its own. It has traveled the world and been shown in many museums and exhibitions. The piece has been published many times, most recently in Brigitte Martin's definitive book "Humor in Craft". Oddly enough, we have experienced a wide range of reaction to the piece from laughter to a death threat. Fortunately the overwhelming response is the former. Either way, the piece clearly connects with people the world over.
