Fallen Soldier

I've been away and so haven't posted anything for a while.
We were on holiday in Brittany and Normandy, and passed several of the war graves there.
I was reminded of this sculpture that I did some time ago.
The subject is a fallen soldier.
I was thinking of the many men who were executed in Ireland and Europe during the second decade of the the twentieth century.
This figure could be a soldier from any army.

I have to say it breaks my heart to think of all the young men who have lost their lives upon the whim of generals and politicians.
