The Birthmachine is H.R. Giger's artistic manifestation of his belief that the greatest threat to our civilization is the approaching overpopulation of the planet. The inspiration for the Birthmachine sculpture and the 'Bullet Babies' is the 1967 pen and ink Giger artwork "Birthmachine", a cut-away image of a fully loaded Walther pistol.
Available for adoption in either bronze or aluminum, the limited edition Birthmachine Baby sculptures sit inside the shell of a 9mm Luger casing. The bottom surface of the sculptureis finished to look like a real bullet and is marked '9MM GIGER', along with the artist's signature and the edition number.
