Pyramids in the Scraptors' sculpture mad garden

We have installed in the sculpturemad garden the pyramids that formed one of the installations at Stourhead, the National Trust garden in Wiltshire. Our sculpture trail from 2015 to 2017 commemorated the effect of World War 1 on the community. The Dorset Yeomanry, in  which many local men served, fought in the Middle East and Gallipoli campaigns. In the top image are  two pyramids on which Paul pointed motifs from the memorials at Gallipoli. On the left the soldier bearing a wounded companion is the memorial to the Commonwealth troops. Ont the right is Cannakale, the monument to the Turkish troops. In the image immediately above are the red poppy the British emblem of commemoration and the blue cornflower the French equivalent. Below shows the Stourhead now placed with pyramids in the Egyptian Frieze which Anthony created ten years ago. The pyramids were all donated and made by Sureset a Wiltshire firm that makes permeable paving. (One of the sheep in the field was spotted trying to mount a pyramid to eat the ripe apples.)
