A picture of a poppy flower was made into a jigsaw puzzle.  Each piece was placed on a taxidermy pin inside a clear acrylic box.  The boxes are placed on top of a hand written essay about the US involvement in the heroin drug trade caused by Afghanistan war.  Heroin production increase by 10 times since the US invasion, and 10 years later the heroin and opiate addiction is at an all time high in the US.
