The end times?

When I first saw this my first thought was 'cool, I want one of those', then of course I realised I wouldn't be able to fit it on my drive and the neighbours might complain.
This peice of artwork is constructed by Kuksi It seems he does a lot of this kind of stuff - some of it looks quite gross. However it appeals to me on some level, maybe it is the intricate detail, maybe it is the fact that it reminds me of some of the artwork in warhammer 40,000 which I used to really enjoy playing.

The church tank also reminds me of the following

'And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this Thy hand grenade that with it Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits, in Thy mercy." And the Lord did grin and the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit bats and large chu...

... And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less.

Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it." Amen.
