The title references the 8 minute and 46 second video of George Floyd being chocked to death.  The video went viral and ignited world wide protests. The enormous outpouring of rage is evidence that George Floyd's death is part of the much broader problem of systemic racism. The exaggerated heel on the boot is meant to draw attention to the magnitude of the problem – that people of color have been crushed beneath the heel of racial injustice for centuries. The Minneapolis police badge and the Police car door sign emphasize the role of police brutality. The stereotype shoeshine box doubles as a jail, where people of color are incarcerated disproportionately to their numbers in America.  And the American flag, with its new black border & stripe representing all Americans, is hopefully the future.

Leather workboot with exaggerated sole, authentic vintage Minneapolis police badge, Police sign used to hang off car door (most small towns did not have the money for their own police cars so each officer would take turns hanging this on an available vehicle). Antique shoeshine box reconstructed into a jail, 3 wood handcarved men, hand painted flag on wood.
