Reds Under The Bed


I love this idea! Surely a great phrase from the 50�s although apparently it was based around political cartoons in 1920's & 30's showing people searching for communists under their beds.( wikipedia)
As a reflection on communism, this phrase came to mind but in a present context most people would be more likely to have these sort of reds in the house rather than the other type.
I wasn�t sure how I would do the bottles but decided on this welded version. As I was setting up the piece one of the legs slipped off the edge of the base and the whole bed tipped making the scene look much more dramatic. I couldn�t really keep it like that so I compromised by cutting one of the legs shorter. It certainly makes it look like he has sampled at least one of the �reds� before he has looked for the others!
