'The Rise of Discord' by Broton is Mechanical Version of Eris

'The Rise of Discord' is an exceptionally beautiful robot sculpture by Greg Brotherton of Brotron. It depicts Eris, the Greek goddess of discord, rivalry, strife, and contention. If it's been awhile since you last studied Greek mythology, she was frequently associated with the perils of war and was said to derive great pleasure from human bloodshed.

With this mythological background, it's perfectly natural that 'The Rise of Discord' is constructed of steel and resembles a sexed-up suit of armor. The mechanical skeleton is fully functional and covered with a framework of steel words, according to Brotron.
