Oh, I get it a bit.  This is even more striking when you think of the image that Ayanami represents: a clone, made by man in an attempt to salvage a life that once was, and yet very much an individual with a will and dreams.  Creating her as a doll amplifies this concept that she is nothing more than 'a clone' and can be justified as not real. The child who is aiming at her does aim with expert skill, but almost reluctantly; or, out of boredom of repetitious and monotonous action. Anyways, interesting concept but Im sure there's much more to it than that as well ;)

I feel so creeped out about this. especially because I just read up on the Rwandan Genocide that happened 20 years and two days ago. but this is hauntingly amazing, especially for a traditional piece. great work!

The victims (most likely children), seen simply as "toys", is a visually chilling (and brilliant) commentary, of any war, in any part of the planet. The innocent expression and helpless body language of the doll only drives the bitter spike of realism of the "blind" child, with the most accurate and unwavering aim. This is horrifying, this is absolutely brilliant. Bravo, Mr. H.

Was mich schon immer interessiert hat Herr Helnwein, ist die Frage ob sie ausschließlich Pinsel zum schaffen eines solchen Werkes in Mischtechnik verwenden oder auch andere Hilfsmittel wie z.B Airbrush?
Denn in den Videos und auf Fotos sieht man sie immer nur mit Pinsel und ich würde auch nicht vermuten, dass sie Airbrush verwenden, allerings beschäftigt mich diese Frage seit ich gesehen habe, dass auch Fotorealisten aus den 70gern - zum Teil - Airbrush verwendet haben.

Helnwein used airbrush vor earlier works up until the 1980s. Since then he only uses brush.

So is it safe for me to assume that you aren't really Gottfried Helnwein? Not that that's a big deal seeing as all credit seems to be given (I at least get to favorite some of his work).
