So, it turns out that there’s this artist in Vancouver who makes high-end, small-scale replica medieval siege weapons. Following his recommendation, I see them as desktop toys for geekily-inclined management-types with a wry sense of humour, a good eye for fashionable design and a penchant for historicism. Plus, it’ll impress the hell out of your co-workers. Either that or scare them witless (these are functional replicas, after all).
