The B61-12 missile is represented at its actual size, 3.56m in length and a diameter of 33cm. A tiny size compared to its destructive power: four times more powerful than the one dropped on Hiroshima.
It has been done with nearly 14,000 pellets, the same as those used by fishermen to ballast fishing rod lines. The same used to fill the hunting cartridges.
Lead has become the good choice of material to represent a weapon made to kill.
This sculpture has been shown in Germany for Nord Art 2018, see here for a detailed description.
