Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
Walter Allward's design for the Vimy Memorial is powerful, with its allegorical figures united in a sense of profound loss and mourning. Seeing the original half scale models is always haunting.
They well express the grief...
Have you read "The Stone Carvers" by Jane Urquart? Highly recommended.
Beautiful memorial! Take care, have a great day and a happy new week!
I´m with italiafinlandia!
...this memorial makes a powerful statement!
Beautiful memorial. Have a good week.
It's a beautiful group for the horror and sadness of today in Afghanistan.
@Italiafinlandia: I concur.@David: I'll look for it.@Eileen: thank you.@Iris: as am I.@Tom: it does.@Nancy: thanks.@Jan: years of work and sacrifice down the drain, and the same murderous 6th century mindset lunatics back in command there.@Anvilcloud: indeed.
They all look sad but the sculptor (s) did a very good job !

Thank you for showing these wonderful pieces, William. Such emotion.
Son imágenes llenas de dolor y de desconsuelo. No lo ha podido manifestar mejor su autor.
Very little is said about the grief caused by war.
"Powerful" is a good word to describe this memorial.
Very powerful sculptures, you photograph them well.
Amazing sculptures ~ divine message that is universal ~ Living in the moment,A ShutterBug Explores,aka (A Creative Harbor)

Haunting is a good description.
Very much so.
The sculptures are very dramatic.
So interesting. Every War memorial anywhere is beautiful---this one is strikingly beautifulMB
I think so.
Those figures are powerful!
Sad but moving!
It was the war to end all wars. No one remembered to do that.
That's one of the more moving war memorials I've ever seen. And all the statuary is stunning.
The Vimy Memorial is one of my favourites William, fascinating to see the model for if here ✨
So moving ...All the best Jan
