Making my page's Background Image clickable. Is this possible?

I want my HTML page to have a tiled background Image, which if clicked redirects to some set link in the Javascript.

However, I also want a content block that is above the background, that is not clickable, since if the user clicked in this content box, they wouldn't be clicking on the bkg image.

Any ideas on how to achieve this?

Thanks

Just take what's in the window.onload snippet here:
<html>
  <head>
  <title></title>
<script>
window.backgroundClick=true;
window.onload=function() {
  document.getElementById('centerPiece').onclick=function() { location='http://google.com/search?q=div' }
  document.getElementById('centerPiece').onmouseover=function() { window.backgroundClick=false }
  document.getElementById('centerPiece').onmouseout=function() { window.backgroundClick=true }
  document.onclick=function() {
    if (window.backgroundClick) location='http://google.com/search?q=background';
  }
}
</script>
  </head>
  <body style="background-color:green">
<div id="centerPiece" style="position:absolute; width:200px; height:200px; background-color:red">Hello</div>
  </body>
</html>
