Those little divices can open a lot of locks. If you find the right one you may be able to open any door. Keys are baring information and are often unique. The key is the answer to the puzzle set by the maker of a lock. This little object has even evolved into a powerful symbol of safekeeping of the things that are dearest to us. Keys were often used as a right of passage such as reaching adulthood and are part of the folklore in many cultures. Key is also the symbol of luck. The ancient Greeks used one key as a symbol for knowledge and life.
Couldn’t make the one I wanted happen .. so I made this instead.
It’s a fan tribute based of concepts present in the Watchmen movie.
.. Seemed to make more sense at the time when I made this in 2009 ..
Pretty much it’s the helmet from the ‘Full Metal Jacket’ poster .. added a couple shotgun shells – I was going to put the Sally Jupiter lighter in there – but I don’t smoke.
Then I realized the Gorillaz did the same thing for their cover on the “Dirty Harry” single with a single shotgun shell and a lighter.
.. maybe later I’ll make an alt or something ..
