 To convey the idea that rumors and the written record alike can obscure and sow confusion, the two paintings are mounted back-to-back. Side B depicts a hung pirate who was left to rot at The Point, punished for murdering sailors. It was also rumored that Native Americans were slaughtered at the Point tricked with the promise of a peaceful "interview." The two transparent paintings allows one to see the muted impressions of the other side's narrative images. Even though this is one painting, there is neither front nor back. The painting can be seen from both sides, encouraging many perspectives and feelings.
