motive:

Designed by Johannes Stüttgen, this poster shows Beuys' sculpture 'Der Unbesiegbare' (The Unconquerable One). It depicts a hare made from modeling clay being threatened by a plastic toy soldier - for Beuys, this represents the senseless war waged by cold technology against natural warmth and fertility. The German Green Party declined to use this poster as part of their election campaign." (Döring, 2011, p.106)

   You can see the small figures today in Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt (hall 7, show case 4).
