'Medals for the Armchair General'
Every 'armchair warrior' needs some self-awarded medals of fictional-valour, for bravery in the face of non-existent odds, of heroically facing down computer game enemies & holding out for the entire length of any war film. Always bravest when safely tucked up in his own home.
(Cold cast bronze - bronze dust & resin)
This is a sort of memorial & celebration of true capitalists: bank robbers. These are the true capitalists, the epitome of real laissez-faire capitalism. Hostile takeovers, short term/high risk investors & the ultimate in self-regulating industries.
Cast aluminous cement.
