Certificate of Authenticity

Vicente Ortiz Cortez, Lot Number 2 (Texas), 2021, Edition 1 of 1

Featured in this NFT is a wire coat hanger. Associated with abortion rights, it is a symbol of inequality. This household item has been used as an abortion tool when there is a lack of access to abortion services.

The Owner of this NFT is entitled to install Lot Number 2 (Texas) as an art installation in one location at a time:

Lay a 3 x 5 feet 2021 US flag flat on the floor of a space with as much light as shown in the NFT, including one spotlight pointed at the center of the flag from the bottom right corner of the flag at an approximate 60 degree angle

The flag shall be placed on the floor no closer than 3 feet from any wall or other objects

With the assistance of a stencil or projector, center the outline of a 2021 map of the US state of Texas on the flag, with the northern and southern most edges of the state map reaching the longwise center of the top and bottom stripes

Fill the state silhouette with unprocessed soil to about 1/2 inch in height

Soil coloration shall be consistent, as shown in the NFT

Bend a wire coat hanger so it resembles the one in the NFT, and place it over the soil on the northwestern quadrant of the state silhouette
