Somewhere over who's Rainbow?

 Somewhere over who's Rainbow?, MDF, Flock Steel, 2010
Things might not be as they seem... Further investigation using the iconic AK-47. The title makes reference to the song "Somewhere over the Rainbow" from the Wizard of Oz where Dorothy sweetly sings about some dreamy non-existent Utopia. Truly a classic of Hollywood creating contemporary mythology. The Rainbow, a symbol of good, the calm after the storm and any other number of similes and metaphors in literature, music and art in this particular case serves as a warning for the wary to have a good second look before venturing forward.
