Great Royaldevon 2016-05-06 1:14

Hello Ike,

I have never seen this sculpture before but what a clever use of symbolism, to draw attention to the problem of landmines! I'm sure we have all seen photographs or know people who have suffered in this way! The Invictus Games are just about to begin, where injured servicemen use sport as a means of getting their lives back together and feeling useful in themselves.

It was important to include figures in your photograph, to reveal the huge scale of the sculpture, and you have done this very well. Not only do we have figures but one is posing and the other is setting the scene perfectly with a camera!
I love how the chair dwarfs even the elevated flags. Maybe, another message, that this is more important than all the individual squabblings between nations!!

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Hi Beverley,
Always exiting to read your enlightening, elaborating and wisely written notes.
You had conveyed best possible message in words intended by the creator/s of this monumental sculptor.
My best regards and many thanks,
Ike
