2013 Best Use of Green Army Men!

A Large-Scale Peace Sign Made of 20,000 Toy Soldiers. What appears to be a unifying symbol of peace from afar is, in fact, a swarm of 20,000 toy soldiers in conceptual artist Ole Ukena's piece titled In the Absence of War. The massive diptych consists of two sides of the well-known peace sign, each saturated with little green army men with their weapons on hand, ready for a battle. This thought-provoking piece is open to interpretation. As we go into 2014 let's Give Peace a Chance!
