Christa Gail Pike (born March 10, 1976) is the youngest woman to be sentenced to death in the United States during the post-Furman period.She was 20 when convicted for a torture and murder she committed at age 18.

According to a piece published in Singapore's English language newspaper The Straits Times on April 22, 2001, Pike lived a troubled life and dropped out of high school. She joined the Job Corps, a government program aimed at helping low-income youth by offering vocational training and career skills, and attended the now closed Job Corps center in Knoxville, Tennessee. Pike fell for a young man named Tadaryl Shipp, one year her junior. Together they "dabbled" in the occult and devil worship.

The painting measures 12x12. There is some of Pike’s blood in the painting, which she has written on the back. The artwork is signed twice.
