A Very Human Hitler

The project this was based around the word 'hybrid' or 'hybridity' (not that such a word exists). Alongside this I had Darth Vader, an excellent hybrid of man/machine, father/enemy, good/evil. This one is Hitler. Naked.

I thought I would strip him down (ha ha) from it being 'Oh look there's Hitler at a rally he wants to catch the bus and so do all those other people' to 'Hitler was actually a man.' Hitler's name is more powerful than the name Satan in today's society, and I wanted to un-nerve people and force them to consider the fact that he was once a child, and merely a man (albeit a terrible one).
