Image Statement: Two little brown wrens hop through the landscape, landing on strange metal objects. A metal hose and pipe encroach on this deceptively picturesque scene. The lush knitted cushion of vegetation is scarred by a muddy tire track cutting a swath across the floral carpet. The cannon-like end of the real estate developer's water pipes is aimed directly at the birds.
