Lone soldier

A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO I WAS WALKING THROUGH ELLINGTON PARK on my way to work and I found this gentleman standing near the main gate.  As there was still sawdust on the ground this wonderful carving can only just have been done.
The Friends of Ellington Park have been putting a lot of effort into making the park great again - with new flower beds being planted and events being held.

I had to take pictures from all angles because I was so impressed with the workmanship of this woodcarving to commemerate the start of the Great War.

 I liked the dead tree that he had been carved from but this is even better.
