The sculpture discusses the inherent masculinity of warfare and criticizes the notions of dominance and power through conquest and war in a humorous and imaginative manner. Burrell is juxtaposing the rigid and solid machine representational of masculine power and designed for warfare with organic, domestic and decorative forms. Thus he attempts to invalidate the powerful masculine qualities of the tank and make its presumed masculinity impotent.
