6X8", Acrylic on Canvas, June 2000.
The ignition is released by pulling the finger lever. The chemicals inside the grenade start to mix, and after 8-12 seconds it starts a reaction that breaks through the protective tape and spews out gas. The technical term for what it does to humans is "lachrymatory" but I think it just means that people cough, and cry a whole bunch, allowing whoever fired the weapon to rush in and 'eliminate' the gassed individual.
