Description

This splayed 1971 Fiat Spider was cut into flat sections and coated with zinc chromate and acrylic lacquer, before being hung on the side of the Moscone Parking Garage like a trophy.

In the artist’s words: “As animals become more of an endangered species, the urban hunter will seek the automobile as his prey.”

The piece was restored in 2002 when it was repainted, rechromed, reglassed, and relocated to the garage’s south wall.
