Three dimensional cultural mash-up made from a plaster cast duck, toile de jouy, and a representational homage to Roy Lichtenstein’s “Whaam”. It captures the instant when the duck is hit by the hunter’s bullet, and together with the “Whaam”, the death of the duck in flight abruptly disrupts the gentile quiet of the baroque country scenery.
