Cannon for Stourhead

A cannon for Stourhead, the National Trust property in Wiltshire.Our  last installation for our sculpture trail commemorating the effect of World War 1 on the community will recall Harry Hoare, heir to the estate who was killed at Mughair Ridge in Palestine in November 1917. He went to the rescue of the horses.We are evoking his happy young life with  a nursery themed installation ; but it will have  intimations of his sad end. As a boy he may have well played with a toy cannon. This cannon is work in progress.
