Remembrance tells a story of fallen soldiers of war. The young female figure wears a type of dress associated with candy stripers-or hospital helpers. I was a candy striper when I was young-taking flowers and books to the infirmed. The figure wants to be helpful, but the bird of prey at the heart, indicates an ingrained sense of aggression. The dress is made of an American flag and the bones of fallen soldiers are entangled in ropes. The bones are etched with hashmarks-keeping score of the many casualties.
