Tommy statue


  • Description

    "From website ["Tommy" was the vision of local artist Ray Lonsdale and lovingly produced over a 5 month period. Made for corten steel, "Tommy" will weather over time to produce a weatherproof rust. The 9 1/2 foot statute of a WW1 soldier is sat at rest at the end of the first world war, contemplating the horrors that unfolded during that time. The artist has truly encapsulated the emotion in his stance and on his face at the very moment when the war ended.]" Photo by Chris Morgan, 2016.
