Scrap Metal Soldier – level 3

14-02-2019 15:00

Artist Martin Galbavy created a statue of a WWI soldier entitled “The Haunting”, and he used only scrap metal at a forge in south England.

An unnamed client commissioned the piece, which is set to go on display later this year, to mark the centenary of the end of the Great War.

The statue is over six metres tall and strikes an emotion, according to the owner of the yard where the statue is currently placed.

Difficult words: forge (a blacksmith’s workshop), commission (order), strike (create).
