This is the Fifth 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 sat in his trench, the artillery and gunfire have stopped and he takes time to read his 'letter from home'. The horrors of war will start again soon enough, but for now the comforting words of his loved ones back home are all he has on his mind.
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
