Poster is modeled after the iconic image of Huey Newton of the Black Panther Party sitting in a wicker chair holding a spear in his left hand and a shotgun in his right. The photo was recreated for the 1995 film "Panther" (directed by Mario Van Peebles and starring Marcus Chong as Huey Newton) they substituted a much more standard .30 caliber M1 carbine, but still scattered shotgun cartridges next to the rifle as in the original photo.
