A thin brass bar suppor a train: four wagons pulled by an engine. Each wagon is a solid brass rectangular block with two pairs of wheels that turn and are screwed to the main body. The engine consists of a vertical parallelepiped joined to a horizontal cylindrical structure. There are two holes on the top of each wagon for the lights. The engine has just one hole, for the shamash. This piece is the second of the four produced by the artist, as shown by the serial number stamped on the underside. This creative work is an interpretation of the train from two perspectives: as a toy and a means of deportation.
