I love it! Did you know there is a national monument to the US Navy Sailor in Wash DC? From the Capital Building walking the National mall, it’s on the starboard side, amidships, outboard one passageway (street)!

Tom, that is very cool, so well done. Love the “sea bag”, got one in my attic from many years ago.

Beautiful job Tom. It reminds me somewhat of the statue in front of the Navy Memorial on Pennsylvania Ave in Washington. There are several other statues similar at the Memorial which would give you more inspiration for a project. I love the one in the lobby of the Sailor kissing his wife with his child close by. Reminds me of a time when it was my wife and I and our daughters saying hello or goodbye as my ships deployed or returned from deployment. If you go on line to the Navy Memorial you can see all the statues. Thanks so much for sharing, it brought back wonderful memories.

That is so well done. The proportions are great and the expression on the face is like he just got off the ship and something in mind.
