This work is composed of a large painted fiberglass form reminiscent of a fishing lure. The treble hooks are welded steel and the "lure" is surrounded by puzzle piece shapes with map-like painted designs. The chain attached to the 'lure" ends in a locking ankle clasp. At its' inaugural showing, I stood in the gallery with the clasp locked to my ankle. Hanging on the gallery wall are two fishing stringers with dollar bills.

The work was made in response to the false claim by the U.S. of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) held by the Iraqi Regime that was used to justify the war in Iraq.
