This sculpture has quite a few iconic objects in it. The shape of the body is a Kong (dog toy). The shape and color of the woven piece suggests the size and shape of a dog ear. There are dog tags and a small dog-training collar, which are contemporary icons in this particular scenario. Furthermore the sculpture itself is a reliquary as it actually holds relics of the dog.
