My Tar and Feathering Gloves

6ft x 6ft x 36"

Adorned with feathers, Shoulder length protective gloves dry on a clothes line after use. Tar and feathering, the act of covering someone with hot tar and feathers to humiliate. An act of moral disapproval typically done amongst ones own people, within a community. I decorated the protective tar and feathering gloves with black feathers to underscore that it is an act that is done to ones own.
