The Gold Bug

34″h x 10″w x 12″d   SOLD


Based on Edgar Allen Poe’s story…”the gold bug” is a tale of lunacy & obsession. Bitten by the gold bug, our hero is obsessed with finding an elusive treasure.


booklet reads:


“A gold bug bite sets one off

to lunacy and madness;

Consumes one thoughts

leaving nothing more

than lonliness & sadness.

Confusing schemes

played in the mind

are obsessions that persist.

This treasure lost we’ll never find,

as it does not exist.”
