Hu Zheng, Game of Life, c.2015

By studying the details on the wall panels in the upper left corner we see that we are situated in the LA Central Hospital. An angel and Death kill the time by playing cards, as they await the death of the wrinkled old patient in the bed. Death is cheating; he hides a couple cards under his butt. In his hands we can see a card with Osama Bin Laden’s likeness. Upon close inspection we see the other face cards on the bed to bare the likenesses of Michael Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Bruce Lee, Charlie Chaplin, and a busty gal I don’t recognize. Do you know who she is?
