Entry Description:

HELLO MR. TESLA It is my tribute to the great but poorly known scientist Nikola Tesla (1856 [Austrian Empire] - 1943 [USA]). Tesla worked all his life on electricity and is credited for his works on
coil, turbine, oscillators, electric car, alternative current, induction motor, and wireless technology. At the end of his life he was working on plans of a particle beam weapon but never got to
finish them. He was an utopian who believed that this powerful death ray could act as a deterrent to war by preserving a stable balance of power between potential belligerents. Polished brass - 18
x 24 x 30 cm
