The Police Sculptures

The police I grew up with involved illustrations of police in my grade school textbooks rescuing kittens, directing traffic, being in general beneficial support persons for our wider society.  In my community, across the continent, I suspect there are still representatives of these police.  What images I mostly see today though are of a militarized force sent out to confront some mass at demonstration.  I still prefer the cat rescuer illustrations.  PIECE 1) A Cultural Bygone.  Wood, badge, stuffed cat.  PIECE 2) Traffic Duty.  Cardboard shipping tubes, wood, badge.  – JM
