Real AK47 (decommissioned from active service)
Covered in logo types & iconography from Terrorist & Insurgent groups & Organisations from around the world, in which the AK47 is featured within their logo.
Inspired from the book Branding Terror.Individually hand cut out and layered almost giving the effect of a Marvel Comic. in that there being some irony.
Bullets inside the magazine:
Hollow rounds cast from an AK47 bullet.
Filled with the commodities of conflict, That create insurgents & terrorists
Mounted on a Holy book,
I left the pages blank, as I did not want to make the holy book specific to any one religion,
and also to signify that man re interprets his beliefs & what he reads, to find meaning for his actions,
The book has actually been shot with a real AK47 . the empty cases from the AK47 which shot the book, have been polished and placed on the side of the book.
