"Tank with Car Inside"
This tiny object brings me to contemplate imperialism, the Trojan Horse as inspired by Virgil’s Aeneid, and the way true intents can be veiled by the shrouding of ornate demeanor. The object also reminds me of “the wolf in sheep’s clothing” and the way some people use the guise of friendliness to probe for information. Knowledge is power and the collection of information is a prominent practice in our society. The most humorous depiction of this object is that it is a reverse trojan horse wherein the exterior is the illusion of menacing intent and the interior is a symbol of healthy capitalism in the form a brand new shiny 57 Chevy convertible from America’s golden era!
