A painting entitled "Picnic" by artist Muayad Muhsin, who was both inspired and enraged by a photo of Donald H. Rumsfeld slumped on an airplane seat with his army boots up in front of him, was displayed in Baghdad on June 5. The painting is expected to be unveiled at an exhibition in Baghdad next week.

"It symbolized America’s soulless might and arrogance,” said Muhsin. "Rumsfeld’s boots deliver a message from America: ‘We rule the world,”’ Muhsin, 41, told The Associated Press in an interview. “It speaks of America’s total indifference to what the rest of the world thinks.”
