The Morten Traavik Skin-Coverd Machine Gun Stunned the Army

The Norwegian Armed Forces Museum must not have been expecting its special commission to result in the Morten Traavik Skin-Coverd Machine Gun. The satirical and political artist spared no distasteful detail when it came to designing this contemporary piece of art for the institution.

Complete with as many sexual organs as one can bundle into an mutant anthropomorphic piece of artillery, the Morten Traavik Skin-Coverd Machine Gun has nipples, buttocks, a penis-shaped barrel, as well as hair and arms with hands. Even though this bizarre creation is in fact wearing undies, the Museum would not permit the Russian president to see it when he dropped in to take a look.
