Pride of Soldiers, Kromhout Barracks
Land Forces Command HQ, Utrecht, The Netherlands
A unique 3m (10ft) diameter commission for the Land Forces Command HQ, Utrecht, The Netherlands. Installed October 2010. A sphere of china, initially the scale of the piece is striking, standing at an impressive 3 metres (10ft) diameter. Moving closer, the detail in the individual forms becomes clear; each a stylised sculpture of a soldier. Progressing around the room there's an extra dimension that reveals itself; each soldier stands in perfect formation and comes together to create the Lion of the Armed Forces emblem, with the central light at its heart. Working closely with MVSA Architects and Stefan Van Weelden.
