The Cannon (?)

Es sieht aus wie eine Kanone, deren Mündung in der Erde vergraben wurde ...
It looks like a cannon whose muzzle was burrowed into the ground ...
Es ist eine Kanone, oder? It is a cannon, isn't it?
Oder ist es ein Reptil? Gehören Kanonen zu den Reptilien aller Waffen? Diese Skulptur ist in der Inselstraße in Wangen zu bestaunen.
Or is it a reptile? Are cannons reptiles of all weapons? This scuplture can be seen at Inselstraße in Wangen.

That's funny and very clever...the tail looks like one of our Florida alligators! I wonder if it is a commentary on the uselessness of war?

Dear Anonymous. Thanks for your question. The sculpture was built by sculptor Mr. Lutz Ackermann. There are no informations about name or proposition of this artwork. But I'll ask the sculptor for more informations. You'll hear from me later again.
