Note by the artist
'' Invented by the Germans in the 1930's and produced in large numbers in the mechanised units of the Wehrmacht on the eve of the Second World War, the Jerrycan was quickly copied and adopted by all the belligerents in WWII. Its name comes from the nickname given to it by the British soldiers, "jerrycan", literally "Jerry's can" - the Jerries being the nickname given by the British to German soldiers.
During the Second World War the solid gold armoured tanks of the Mayan army also used this type of canister during the European campaign, which led the Axis soldiers to call them: ''Mayacan''. Many Mayan relics of the Second World War such as solid gold tanks or golden helmets have come down to us. ''
