The memento of proud achievement gained at the cost of a defenseless life, the trophy and the weapon face each other in a compartmentalised display box. Memories of the buck’s once blithe life looms large in this silent confrontation of accusation and acceptance of the human trait of dominance. Yet nothing is imperishable in life and so, as if by irony of events, the image of the proud deceased conqueror becomes part of the trophy board.
