"Nike SB Dunk High—Un-Heavens Gate"

Oil on canvas 15" x 15 inches 38cm x 38cm Inspired by the Heavens Gate religious cult's 1997 mass suicide. The 38 members believed they would join an alien spacecraft alongside the Comet Hale-Bopp, but instead were all found dead dressed in black, white & purple uniforms and each wearing new Nike Cortezes. The original controversial design never made it to retail, but the renamed "Un-Heavens Gate" was released in April 2009. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heaven%27s_Gate_%28religious_group
