    On display at the Tate Britain on Millbank, this is Jaguar GR.3A XZ118 and she “Lies like a submissive animal” on the gallery floor, designed to “imply both captured beast and fallen trophy”. The former First Gulf War 'Buster Gonad', now emasculated.

Just to clarify this photo, the Tate Modern is an art gallery in London and there are two aircraft on display (Dec 2010), this Jaguar and also a Sea Harrier. The artist is Fiona Banner.

"Banner places recently decommissioned fighter planes in the incongruous setting of the Duveen Galleries. For Banner these objects represent the 'opposite of language', used when communication fails. In bringing body and machine into close proximity she explores the tension between the intellectual perception of the fighter plane and physical experience of the object. A Jaguar lies belly up on the floor, its posture suggestive of a submissive animal. Stripped and polished, its surface functions as a shifting mirror, exposing the audience to its own reactions. Harrier and Jaguar remain ambiguous objects implying both captured beast and fallen trophy."
