Stoneware altered ceramic sculpture by Peter B. Jones titled Post 9-11. The piece is a bust of a Native American with a globe on top of his head with an attachment of an airplane. Above the globe is a spout resembling a nuclear cooling tower with binary code painted on it. The face/bust is partially covered with bullet holes, and the sinew ties on the bust are decorated with beads and carved buffalo horns in the shape of bombs.

Jones's sculpture Post 9-11 is a representation of his feelings of dissatisfaction with the ways in which the world changed after 9/11.
