The Devil Hath Power to Assume a Pleasing Shape depicts a bomb of beauty rather than destruction. In questioning the relationship regarding an object’s preconceived notion, the artist takes a humorous approach to classical imagery where the red and greens of the parrots, grey monkeys and decorative urn set against the regal background scenery almost distracts from the violent weapon that it makes up, especially when backed once more on gold.
