Description
According to the artist, Lust for Gold Shall be Thy Undoing, is an illustration for a book entitled "Morti, 500,000 infanti" which was made in protest of the Gulf War. He printed extra impressions so that he would give or sell them separately but states that fewer than twenty impressions were printed from the plate. The book was published in an edition of five and is in the Bancroft Library at the University of California Berkeley and the Rosicrucian Museum of San Jose.
