Seven virtual versions of the enforcer, the specially-designed battering ram used during dawn raids etc by the British police. Colloquially also known as the bosher, the nigel, the donker, and the big red key, it is presented here in a range of seven unoffical, red RAL paint colors.

Incidentally, there is a charming song by Woolcraft called ‘The Big, Red Key’ (SoundCloud, YouTube) which is written from the perspective of just such a battering ram. It has nothing to do with this artwork.
