Pair that with one of the AK37s with the "modernistic" paint job.

I think that is very creative and original and blowing the picture up I think it is well done but having said that, I don't think I would want to see it again,

At least they didn't just gut it and paint it white! They get points for originality!

I would never own it and I would never condone doing something like this, but there have been some rare instances in repurposing/redoing where I have said:

this is well-done for what it is, but it is absolutely not for me in any size, shape, form, design, or style.

Looks like an old lithographed tin bank that would say "Made in Japan" on the back.
