Harmless Danger

This is a functional SCULPTURE design of a leather hand bag CONCEPT.

This Sculpture and Fashion piece poses MANY questions:

Who? - Who can actually wear this bag in public? Who CANNOT??

What? - What if we all had a bag like this?

— this question is meant to be considered in the context of this bag being a commercially sold item. It is a critique on America’s gun control laws; it seems that ANYONE can get a gun. Well, if this bag was sold commercially, anyone COULD get a gun (virtually). That imaginary scenario would become a sort of reality.

How? - How would the police react? To a Brown man? To a White woman? — cops have already made “mistakes” and KILLED people who they THOUGHT had a gun. And if they saw this??? Then what??

But it’s just a bag. The discussion is ENDLESS. Call Ellen.
