The Lady & the Sailor by 


We were fascinated by a series of sculpures we saw in Tasmania.
They were created from 6 trees that had been planted to commemorate Defence Force Personnel (WWI I think).
When the trees were found to be dying it was decided to turn them into sculptures about the men that they celebrated. This one forms a V shape.
This one is my particular favourite. It is about a sweetheart waiting for her sailor to return (I don’t think he does).
Photo taken with Sony Cybershot 4.1.
Hope you enjoy the poignancy of the piece as I did.
These statues were one of the 50 top highlights of Tasmania.
Help with the place name would be appreciated.

Thanks to the woodworking group and its hosts for featuring this picture, much appreciated.

I am life time doodler, who has decided that it is time to see if anyone else likes my art. Here’s hoping!

I have had a go at writing, drawing, painting, graphic design, photography and digital creation & manipulation. Hope you enjoy my work. All encouragement appreciated.

I love helping RB newbies and sharing the hosting of a few groups.
