#449 “In a Barrel?”

From a student at SAU in Collegedale, Tennessee

A while back I posted a group of illustrations from some students at Southern Adventist University in Collegedale, Tennessee; however, at the time of the original post, I chose to put this particular illustration on the back burner. Why? Well, simply put, I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what this picture is all about. Is it a pop culture reference? A historical allusion? A complicated metaphor? Or just an inside joke? After a little research, I discovered that a manufacturer called Lone Wolf makes gun barrels which are popularly used in Glock firearms, but somehow I don’t think that’s quite right. But regardless, the quaint mystery behind this piece will be keeping it on my mind for some time to come… and maybe that’s what the artist had in mind all along…
