A is for Atomic Bombs

Materials: Cast bronze
Dimensions: 16 x 15 x 9 cm

As a grade school student I lived in a large house in Seattle that had a bomb shelter in the basement. In the 1960’s the ‘Cold War’ was a concern for my parents’ generation. At school we practiced ‘Duck and Cover’ for protection from the A bomb’s blast. I suspect that our bomb shelter would have been no more effective than a wall of Lego blocks.
