Meticulously Detailed Sculptures of Churches as Tanks

This series of sculptures, aptly known as Churchtanks, by artist Kris Kuksi presents a controversial re-imagining of cathedrals as heavily armored tanks. Like much of his body of work, Kuksi’s pieces in this collection critique organized religion and comment on morality by combining the faith-based architecture with military force.

The mixed media constructions are meticulously crafted, boasting the utmost detail in both the Baroque-inspired houses of worship and the modern industrial design of the combat vehicles. Through this visual juxtaposition, the sculptor is able to start a conversation. Kuksi’s biography on his website states: “Kris feels that in the world today much of mankind is oftentimes frivolous and fragile, being driven primarily by greed and materialism. He hopes that his art exposes the fallacies of Man, unveiling a new level of awareness to the viewer.”
