Replication

So, these 2 pieces are a refinement of several previous ideas worked out in a different form…


A rifle shell has the name of the load on the butt end of the ammo –in this case a W-W [Winchester] Super Brass 7mm Remington Magnum. In the center is where the pin is struck to detonate the gunpowder, which produces enough gas to fire the actual bullet.

In keeping with my thoughts on the replication of violence as a virulent teme, I have situated this image to appear beautiful, hinting at a mandala or religious pattern, while more closer inspection reveals sperm flocking to an egg.

Above is “7mm Super”

Below is “270 Win”
