The Esso Oil Can is printed on a field of gold leaf to resemble a religious icon. The work is a play on the expression of oil being "black gold" as it is so sought after and a crucial resource in our modern age.

Please note that there is no copyright notice in the actual artwork. The notice only appears on the photos of the artworks that I posted to my website.
