The basic shape was turned as a bell to represent the bells that stopped ringing during the wars.

 

The pyro texture at the base and inside represents the footprints of our solders in the trenches.

 

The poppies of remembrance decorate the body of the piece.

 

The poppies that have been cut out and lay at the base of the piece are for the people that gave their lives.

 

The three large poppies with their strong stems show the strength and sacrifice of The Fallen.
