‘The Pipe’ is a canvas that represents the assault rifle AK47.
The pictorial yield and the title refer to the canvas of Rene Magritte but the incongruity between it and the subject of the paint causes a shot circuit of meaning. The rifle is composed by a tube —the gun barrel— but the title cynically deviates to an image of a smoking pipe placed in the mouth.
