I love this 2000 piece by artist Elizabeth Demaray:

This is a view of a 10 ton 1957 Nike-Hercules Nuclear/Conventional Warhead, sitting on its launch pad. I have upholstered it in eighty-eight yards of light blue quilted satin. The piece involved softening and familiarizing this object by hand mapping it in its silo at the headlands Nike Missle site. The pattern that was created then allowed me to make a “cozy” style covering for the warhead.
