A Rainbow’s End

A war to end all wars. To pay the ultimate sacrifice to afford freedom to others. Never forget the price paid when you see the tears flowing and the wretched signs of fear scaring the faces of those trying to escape tyranny and war. The greatness of a country is measured in the remembrance not to turn its back on the reasons why past generations laid down their lives.

Each 12″ plastic figure in a hand-stitched shroud is linked to a fatality on 1st July 1916 using records from the Commonwealth War Commission. 19240 Shrouds of the Somme, College Green, Bristol 11th -18th November 2014. Rob Heard is the artist behind the exhibition, which marks the end of the Battle of the Somme on 18th November 1916. For more information click (here)
