Brown’s work reflects the complex mix of societal influences he was subjected to growing up. Mounted on the piece are several depictions of a ‘gung-ho’ militarised society; a religious figure, which suggests the social 'blessing' of this type of society; and a skull suggesting the inevitable outcome.

Edition 5/5 of this artwork is in the collection of the Oliewenhuis Museum, Bloemfontein.
