Preview of my work for: BULLETS and LOVE 2

I have created some sculptures in my life time, but this was one, was a bit more fun and also slightly disturbing. It wasn't intentional at first, but understanding the title of the show: "Bullets and Love" I took it and ran with this. Also, those military pendants that is upon the chest are real, and those were given to me on award ceremonies.

*On the top portion of the mannequin, there is my name tag that I wore with my class A uniform.
