Description
Darwin Military Museum commissioned Gillie and Marc to pay tribute to the Anzac soldiers who bravely fought in WWII. The Government organisation is a very popular tourist destination, ranking second out of 104 sites on Trip Advisor. Every year they hold a Remembrance Day ceremony where retired diggers come along. The artists wanted to create a soldier that would educate foreign tourists while paying warm respects to past soldiers.

This was a wonderful honour and even more important to the artists as Marc’s grandfather fought in Gallipoli. He was shot but survived and was later honoured as a hero. Marc’s grandfather was a kind, loving man and a wonderful grandfather who passed away from lung disease, the effects of mustard gas. Gillie and Marc decided to create this bronze sculpture based on an old photo of him before he went to battle. To all the Anzacs we will never forget the sacrifice you made.
