In 2015, Vilks went to a discussion on free discourse that was focused on a firearm assault in Copenhagen. He said he was most likely the objective of the assault, which killed a movie chief.
Even though he is generally popular for his sketch of Muhammad as a canine, Vilks was a craftsman and extremist who regularly worked with paint or made establishments.
One of his manifestations was a model made of driftwood in nature save in southern Sweden which he raised without authorization and which set off an extended fight in court.
