Ducati Model 271
with The Black Mariah at Terminal Convention
Cork International Airport
March 2011

A reproduction of the inscription on a removed public sculpture in Tikrit, Iraq. It says: "Muntazer: fasting until the sword breaks its fast with blood; silent until our mouths speak the truth." It is in honor of journalist Muntazer al-Zaidi, who hurled his shoes at Bush and called him a "dog" at a news conference during the former president's final visit to Iraq. Ducati Model 271 is the type of shoe that was thrown.
