War, Peace & Hope Eternal.

A devastated landscape remains in the wake of the ravages of war; within our environs,  the human psyche and our collective conscience.

Tiny black seeds laid dormant through prolonged battles miraculously germinate. Synonymous with peace and remembrance, scarlet field poppies dramatically contrast their obliterated environs, spurned into life in early Spring by virtue of destructively churned soils and the warming of seasons.

Hope eternal that our world may soon know a peaceful future for all. Peace that best honours those lost, those returned, those who remained and those who survived.
