This is a portrait of JFK.  He represents the second hero in the "story" of my gunpowder exhibit.  On his forehead, the Lips symbol appears.  This is a recurring symbol throughout my gunpowder collection.  It is the symbol of the heroes, and represents all that they stand for; peace, acceptance, and equality for all mankind.  It also has to do with how society tends to romanticize tragedy; how tragedy always seems to befall the good, and how we should mourn, appreciate, and learn from those martyrs who gave so much in the name of their beliefs.  In the background, you see the faces of Lee Harvey Oswald, Jackie O, and Marilyn Monroe.  I also have the date of his assassination, 11-22-1963, repeating over and over again.
