Hi all I have not posted for a while so thought I would share this piece with it it’s a bowl made from English horse chestnut. It’s in the shape of a ww1 helmet. I used this timber to represent the millions of horses and animals killed during this time. The splits and cracks represent the battle field and trenches while the barbed wire shows the horror of the conflict. The poppy in the centre I made from sapelle ebony and some stained tulip wood this is for everyone who fought and was killed from whichever country. Comments are welcome cheers dunk

Very clever design & execution. It reminds me of the John McCrae poem “In Flanders Fields”.

Thanks for sharing.
