Granite: 4x3x3ft 2.00 tons. Location: Nipponzan Myohoji Temple, Willen Lake – Milton Keynes. Sold.
A figure twists in anguish and looks upwards saying “Let this never happen again.” Carved in memory of those who died in Hiroshima, this sculpture warns of the tragedy of nuclear war. Every year on 6th August, Hiroshima Day, candles are lit around the sculpture.
Purchased from the Ronald Rae Exhibition at Milton Keynes 1995-1999 and gifted to the Temple by art consultant, Edna Read who died tragically in a car crash in October 2012. She is greatly missed.
