Mother And Son
Radical Reconstruction Fine Art Featuring Nancy Wood
Mixed Media - Sidewalk Chalk & Sharpie On Lunch Bag
This mother and son collected $10,000 dollars each day of Tet, the Vietnamese New Year. Traditionally 'boat people' impersonate nuns and monks, in order to get 'start-up' money, unfortunately their new found wealth just leads to 'start-up' rackets and scams. Kickbacks to Westminster, California, cops assure that no prohibitions obstruct them. Buddhists believe that if you see a nun, but do not give her all of your money, as a consequence you will be a beggar in your next life: the Temples tell their parishioners, 'that's how it works.' As a result the Temples are very wealthy, and they do not help the poor, if you ask for help, they call the police. Lying is not considered unethical or improper in Vietnam, in fact being truthful is disdained as 'stupid.' The Buddhist clergy simply regard the alms that they collect, for the poor, to be their due, and also they like the idea that the money comes from America but goes to buy themselves cushy real-estate in Vietnam. These seemingly simple devotees, are wealthy beyond measure, and very complacent that the poor will always be with us, as a lost-leader for the collection plate.
