The Bomb

Robert Wilhite
The Bomb, 2008
Lacquer on wood
60" x 120"
As we remember the 70th anniversary of the bombing on Hiroshima today and approach the same for the city of Nagasaki on August 9th, the above is a replica of "Fat Man," the enormous atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki in 1945.

Artist Robert Wilhite crafted the "bomb" out of poplar and mahogany before monochroming it in black lacquer.  Says Wilhite of the replica,
"I wanted it really light and transparent.  I wanted something people would react to.  I want people to think about their own values:  'It's beautiful, but wait a minute –this is a weapon of mass destruction.'"
