Full Description:

This is the third statue in my series commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the end of the First World War (1914-1918)

This piece depicts a young British soldier mentally loaded with the horrors he has seen, he cowers in his trench, unable to advance with his regiment as they prepare to go 'over the top' at dawn.  The same soldier stands next to a wall having been found guilty of cowardice and awaits execution by his colleagues, It's dawn, he stands upright, cold, but not wavering, blindfolded, a white aim square attached to his chest, just one of over 300 who in a more enlightened age would be diagnosed with Combat Stress or PTSD

Each statue is hand-made to order, resulting in a totally unique piece of art. Each piece takes approx 5 - 6 weeks to make and will be numbered and accompanied with a Certificate of Authenticity

Delivery will be by courier and will include insurance

Powertex is an environmentally friendly non-toxic water-based liquid medium used by artists for making fine art sculptures, paintings and decorative objects. It is used with porous materials, such as textiles, fabric, leather, wood, fiberglass and other mixed media materials which hardens the materials when dry. Protective varnish and wax has been applied to the statue making it water resistant enabling it to be placed indoors or outdoors
