Before and after, “Path of Freedom” WWII Company K as they conquer Europe.
This military memorial stands to pay tribute to Company K’s sacrifices and one man friends who was killed in action.
Above the steel map of Europe, you will see 5 doves circling up and around flames to honor who have lost there lives protecting our great country.
In this sculpture, I wanted to play with light. Light is a medium that I have come to love. The way light is transferred throughout the piece, it gives the sculpture a standing presence. In this case, the map of Europe is ignited and displays the path of WWII for people to see during the day and the night.
Creating these sculptures is not a simple task. I went though many versions on how to create something original. After being challenged by my client to come up with something new, I put the pencil to hard paper to create something no one has seen before.
This sculpture can be replicated for another map or another memorial. If this is something you would like to see for your memorial or monument. please contact Austin Weishel at (970) 231-8077, email@example.com
