D-Day and Ron Swanson

What is that huge rusty sculpture in the corner of Ron’s office? Why it is a full Czech Hedgehog anti-tank obstacle from World War II fame!  It exemplifies his prickly disposition towards government and the citizens he serves.

Can I Get One?

No, not really. Shipping costs would be outrageous. There are miniature ones available for games on Amazon, but your best bet is to make one yourself.

Should I Put It In My Office?

Only if you are sure you can get it out the door/window when you get fired.

Deer Sculpture Bookends

 

On his desk with his books, Ron has the most rugged, manly bookends ever: bronze sculptures of magnificent deer heads. They clearly show he is an outdoorsman with taste for classic, timeless art.

Sawed-Off Double Barreled Shotgun

Ron keeps a deactivated (we think) Sawed-off Double Barreled Shotgun mounted on a swivel on his desk. The shotgun belonged to a local bootlegger and represents Ron’s opinion of government. He points the gun at people in his office asking him for things, making them “stare down the barrel.”

Do I Want One?

It’s a bootlegger’s sawed-off shotgun. On a swivel stand.

Where Can I Get One?

Amazing, right on Amazon.com! However, they feature non-firing replicas. Not as much history. But much more safety…

Ship Painting

In Season 1 and Season 2, Ron has an iconic ship painting on his back wall. It’s a real painting by John Ward, officially titled “The William Lee at the Mouth of the Humber Dock, Hull,” or “The Return of the William Lee, 1839.” It adorns his wall until his visit to Charles Mulligan’s Steakhouse, after which it’s replaced with the iconic Steakhouse poster featuring old school boxer Mike Conley.
Try to focus on the painting on the back wall, not the unusually giddy Ron Swanson mustache smile

Do I Want It?

While this piece of artwork is a wonderful decoration, it’s actually been retired by the Man himself, so maybe you don’t want to invest in it.

Where Could I Get It?

It’s actually very easy to acquire in various places online, with different options for size and quality.

Now that's a nice manly ship painting
