Soldier

This soldier's body is made from architectural shapes, some of them pockmarked and damaged. Whether he damaged them or he's carrying them to safety, or whether it's the burden of memories, only he knows.
There is something of my father in this sculpture. He was wounded and left for dead on the battlefield in WW2. I remember the shrapnel scars on his legs. Memories of the war troubled his sleep.
Private collection.
