tyr⋅an⋅ny

Thats how you say it.. How do you define it?

1. arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power; despotic abuse of authority.
2. the government or rule of a tyrant or absolute ruler.
3. a state ruled by a tyrant or absolute ruler.
4. oppressive or unjustly severe government on the part of any ruler.
5. undue severity or harshness.
6. a tyrannical act or proceeding.

However, when sculptor Damian Fennell creates the below work of art about it, we believe he means Tyranny as a mental state…  where one’s body and one’s mind is behaving under the fear of a tryant. Up to you to interpret who or what the tryrant is!?….
