It is my response to the sculpture “Iraq War Memorial” by Daniel Edwards which depicts Prince Harry dead and in his military uniform. The artist is apparently "honouring those willing but unable to serve in Iraq".
Here is the BBC news coverage of the story : http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/7030133.stm
(What do you think of it?)
This sculpture has been troubling me for a while. I think it is good art but I really don't like it. So from this paradox I took inspiration and created my own tribute to Prince Harry and his service in the British Army.
It is based on this official photograph of Harry.
Also thanks to my friend Michael who encouraged me to embrace my love for Harry when he said "You dig the Prince?"
So the answer is yes. Yes I do.
