Seaburn "Tommy", Eleven "0" One

By oldgreyheron      
One minute past 11 o'clock on the 11th November 1918 - "Tommy", a sculpture by Ray Lonsdale above Seaham Harbour in Co Durham. A war weary Tommy sits reflecting on the horrors of war at one minute past the declaration of peace. There are several views here of details and the entire sculpture. It is made of Corten steel which develops this rich rusty finish and is used for most of Ray Lonsdale's sculptures. There's another nearby - I may share fewer images tomorrow.

It's a wonderful, very moving sculpture. Originally it was sited at Seaham as a temporary display but the town fell in love with it and raised the cash to buy it.
Also very difficult to get this much detail into the face, which is always in shadow!
