This is an initial study to be incorporated into larger Digital Work, later. It’s entitled ‘War on Terror: Yo-Yo-Art of King Kong!’ and depicts the icon scene of King Kong (in the sequel version of the 1976 film ‘King Kong’, see last image of Poster, original film made in 1933). The gorilla-like ape ‘King Kong’ is capture from the jungle, chained & shackled and transported to New York, where he escapes with the love of his life. In previous versions, he scales the Empire State Building, but at the end of this version, King Kong scales the World Trade Centre in New York with his Love, where he releases her, and saves her, represented by a white Jelly Baby. The balls, chains & shackles have been changed to a string Yo-Yo, in keeping with Play Art, signifying that Life is in the Balance, of our hands. At the end of the film, King Kong is attacked by Planes, represented by ‘Dusty’ Crop Dust planes (from the film ‘Planes’ made in 2013) who drops, and targets. Within King Kong’s mouth is an Lollipop, the shape of this is similar to target. Ironically, if ‘King Kong’ was real, maybe he could have saved the World Trade Centre’s and it’s occupants from the Terrorist Attacks of 9/11, just like another Super Hero’s such as Superman!
