Arrogance -- an automaton by Pablo Lavezarri

Here is a new thought-provoking automaton by Argentinian artist Pablo Lavezarri. The automaton is titled Arrogance. A quick check with the dictionary shows that the word means "an attitude of superiority manifested in an overbearing manner or in presumptuous claims or assumptions". The motion of the the machine gun in the soldier's hands seems all-too-familiar. Fortunately, the bird who is the presumed target, is unscathed by the hail of bullets and gently flaps its wings. The artist asks if this is the triumph of peace or simply poor marksmanship?
