The Last Tommy at Stourhead

We have created a small exhibition in the stable yard at Stourhead as a taster for our large installations around the estate. Anthony made the sculpture in 2008 using a World War 1 helmet found in his garden which  on the site of a World War 1 army camp, Shortly after he made it the Last Tommy Harry Patch died.

The small tableaux relate to the large installations  in the trail. The one immediately below relates to "Arcadia to Armageddon" in the woods.

The tableau above refers to the Gallipoli installation in the woods. The latter shows the "Anzac Sphinx" a natural formation at Gallipoli which was so named by the Australian and New Zealand troops.
