Art Description

Painting: Fabric on Soft (Yarn, Cotton, Fabric).

The Honesty seed pods are there to represent ranks of regimented soldiers and their journey through war. Inspired by the war poem by A. E. Housman;

Here dead we lie
Because we did not choose
To live and shame the land
From which we sprung.

Life, to be sure,
Is nothing much to lose,
But young men think it is,
And we were young.
