Summary Edit

The George H.W. Bush criminal floor mosaic (with the words "Bush Is Criminal" in English and some untranslated message in Arabic script) at the entrance of the Al-Rashid Hotel, Baghdad, Iraq.

The hotel was built in 1983 and named after Harun Al-Rashid, the reigning Abbisad Caliph between 1135-1136. The mosaic was installed in 1991 after the Persian Gulf War and destroyed in 2003 after U.S. troops entered the grounds specifically to chisel it off the floor and replace it with a mosaic of Saddam Hussein.

Shoes, especially the soles of shoes, are an insult in Arab culture. By placing the mosaic on the floor at the entrance, visitors were forced to put the soles of their shoes on the likeness of Bush's face.

Photographer uncertain (presumably the mostly anonymous Kristen), found at: Kristen's Blog, copyright uncertain.
