WWII sculpture

This school, in Hull, wanted a sculpture which comemmorated the Second World War, but didn't glorify it in any way.

Firstly we had a visit from some veterans - it made my hair stand on end listening to their stories - especially about Dunquerque.

Then we had research time for ideas, and then we made models, using wire, card etc.

This is the sculpture which won the school vote - a woman shelters under her kitchen table during an air-raid.  She has her cat and a cup of tea.  She listens to the wireless.  For further protection she has a saucepan on her head.

But how far away is the whistling bomb?...
