Bamboozled Piece

Carl Sagan Quote

One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.

The last line is Carl Sagan’s name in code.

I made the frame for a different piece. When it came time to assemble, the frame wasn’t quite right. Nice that it found a new home.
