#2 Gallipolli: The Scale of Our War

Posted by
kiwisa (North Shore, New Zealand) on 24 February 2016 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

A medic kneels in dismay over a dead comrade, the scene of the machine gunner's hand with the flies hovering over his wounds is all too realistic.

It is good that war is remembered. If you take lessons, it would be even better.

@Jypyä Pop: You are so right, but we do not learn from the mistakes of the past.

This is hard to see but a real reminder.

@B. Thomas: Yes it is hard to see and read about- and the amazing workmanship on the larger than life people made it even harder.

The wounded hand and the fly look very realistic ... Great shot !!! The details are fabulous ...

@Baldwin VW: Thanks,

James from Central Florida, United States

Indeed, it is very realistic. Perhaps we need to be reminded of the horrors of war periodically to encourage us to find peaceful solutions to our disagreements. I realize it is only a pipe dream but one can hope ...

25 Feb 2016 1:40am

@James: Yes we can hope, but sadly I agree ...just a pipedream.
