The Aftermath?

Recently, while working on a post about casting soldiers, I took this picture to illustrate how the result looks when things don't go quite right. Later though, it struck me that this image could also be an allegory for the aftermath of war, whether it is physical, psychological, or even metaphysical.



What about you, what do you see?

UPDATE: One of our readers with a keen eye commented on the Facebook page: 'instantly reminded me of a book i once saw, by Ernst Friedrich, which displays soldiers horrendously maimed during WWI'. I looked up the pictures -the book is called War against War- and I have to say that his observation was right on the mark. Definitely adequate for the physical consequences of War. A reminder that there are worse injuries and wounds than losing an arm or a leg.
