6X12", Acrylic on Canvas, June 2000.
The standard German "offensive" grenade all the way through World War 1 and World War 2. The design hardly changed for 35 years. This was a time-fused weapon, that was activated by removing the cap on the bottom of the handle, and pulling a toggle inside. The grenade would explode 4-5 seconds later.
