Apsara Warrior

metal figural sculpture made of decommissioned AK-47s welded together
Ouk Chim Vichet
c. 2004
Vichet’s Apsara is a fierce and foreboding anti-war goddess constructed by welding together decommissioned AK-47s. She wears a crown, and stands on a heap of discarded guns, while breaking another gun in half with her bare hands. The sculpture was a part of the Peace of Art Project to promote a Cambodia without weapons.
