Glad, to see the back of you

107 rear view

This is the back of the war memorial in our town.  Erected in 1936, it did both at the time: commemorate the men who had died in  the first world war, and glorify the war itself, preparing the population for the next one.  The names of the dead from that war where added in the fifties.

    1. Thanks. At first, I didn’t like the smiley at the back of the sculpture, it is kind of irreverent for a memorial but the longer I look at it the more I approve. Anything, but glorifying war.
