War Baby Skull

Custom toy maker Bob Conge made this amazing piece, "WAR". He says...
I wanted to create an image that would make the viewer feel the horror of war and perhaps move them to take a stand against its ravages of life and land. The Dick Cheney smile on the skull is no accident.

The WAR figure is a one-up hand cast urethane from my original sculpt. It is 10" high by 6" wide with glass inset eyes. The body and feet of the WAR figure are made up of the dead bodies of solders, crashed airplanes, blown up tanks, barrels of oil, etc and his legs are the trunks from burned and broken trees.

As inspired by, "I am become Death,The shatterer of Worlds", from The Bhagavad-Gita.
