JP's Description: It's well known that italians love their cars. However it's not only the fast sporty machines like Ferrari, Maserati or Alfa Romeo they are passionate about, they also have a love affair with the dinky little Fiat 500.
It was with this in mind that I understood the often repeated image on the Italian news of a Serbian tank crushing the little Italian-made car in a Bosnian town, during the war in ex-Yugoslavia.
It had more effect to elicit the indignance of the nation than if it were instead a Bosnian Muslim man being crushed.
So I thought I'd make a beat up car front headlights and grille - as my tribute to all people and things that get in the way of tanks.
