Art as Political Commentary

Someone came across this image and wondered why there had been no commentary about it, so I thought it a good idea to offer it for your consideration.

You may want to consult this article about the image. I’d note from the copyright date that it precedes events of the past month, although it certainly speaks to them.

    I think it is poignant and pointed, and not inaccurate.

    It could be commentary of anything from the death penalty to Gitmo.

    Might be good cover art for a recording of Strange Fruit.

    Actually, this is one of the most honest pieces of political art I’ve seen in a while.
