Artist Raul Lemesoff has taken to the road in his latest creations “Arma de Instruccion Masiva” (Weapon of mass instruction) to help spread information and knowledge in the battle of ignorance.

Raul’s amazing tank like vehicle is in fact a converted 1979 Ford Falcon, complete with it’s own swivelling turret, space to accommodate 900 books and even a non-functional gun.
