Fully articulated human skeleton in a velvet-lined coffin chased around on each side with three panels showing the course of life, one end with attributes of the arts, the other with attributes of war, the removable cover with the journey in the footsteps of the Angel of Death, surrounded by the faces of infants alternately laughing and crying.

Russian engineers have created a full set of fake weaponry which it sells to some countries, to fool other countries spy satellites and spy-planes (clearly I am no international politic expert from that summary).
