WAYSIDE CROSS FOR A WAR ZONE – A RESPONSE TO SYRIA
Seeing the devastation and desperation caused by the war in Syria, or indeed in any community of any culture or ethnicity, I wondered how people might seek compassion or mercy from elsewhere, even from a forgotten or disregarded deity, in this instance Christian. Perhaps shrines would be built of the detritus, and votive offerings, comprised of everyday commonplace objects, left. The sculpture is a reflection of how we would behave if our world was reduced to rubble and death and chaos stalked us.
This is another sculpture made of bronze and steel.
