The artifact I have chosen is Norman Rockwell’s Rosie the Riveter. Rosie appeared on the front cover of the Saturday Evening Post on May 29, 1943. Rosie is seen over the backdrop of a flowing American flag. She has curly reddish hair; safety goggles cover her forehead and a face shield rests higher. She is taking a break from work to have a ham sandwich. Her rivet gun, still connected to its hose, and her lunchbox sit in her lap. Her blue shirt is rolled up, exposing her very burly arms, which connect to large, masculine hands. Her coveralls are a bit too big, requiring rolling at the cuff and her salmon colored socks are covered by penny loafers instead of work boots. Her feet rest on a copy of Hitler’s manifesto, Mein Kampf. Her lips are tomato red from her lip stick, and her rouge is covered with dirt on her cheek. Rosie’s coveralls are adorned with buttons including the Victory V and a Red Cross for blood donation.
