Guns filled with guts: Anatomy of War

Noah Scalin's "Anatomy of War" sculptures are polymer clay cutaway guns filled with colorful, wet-looking human viscera.

The gun has been clinically dissected revealing a remarkably human set of internal organs – rather than the cold steel and bullets normally found within. The object becomes as fragile as the lives that it can potentially take. In addition the gun become a physical extension of the body of the user of the weapon, albeit one with a conspicuously absent brain.
