The Butcher Boys is a sculpture produced in 1986 by South African artist Jane Alexander.
The three figures depict the human monsters with black eyes, powdery skin due to plaster and were sitting on a bench with no mouth directly conveying to the State of Emergency implications. These three beasts were free from their outside senses.
Jane Alexander covered their ears and mouth with a thick rough skin which appears that they were missing their organs of sensing. Jane Alexander’s sculpture The Butcher Boys inspired many works and was published with a cover photo on Brett Bailey’s Plays of Miracle similarly poses by three men.
South African band Die Antwoord during Feb 2012, released their album Ten$Ion online teaser, which referenced The Butcher Boys sculpture without taking Jane Alexander permission, which in fact turned out to a huge controversy
