In this free-standing diptych, Bottenberg’s clown persona is inserted into facsimiles of Andy Warhol’s 1960's "Elvis" prints, twice painted on ply and cut out. Although both parts of the diptych look identical, the two Elvis’ are different and individual. The laborious painting and cutting out process is contradictory to the speedy silkscreen process used by Warhol’s team of artists.
