Andrew Sinclair’s current commission is being unveiled in Halifax, Yorkshire, on Friday 17th May 2019.
His dynamic 12ft tall bronze memorial sculpture for the Duke of Wellington’s Regiment is in its final stages of preparation before leaving for Halifax in May. It has been over a year in the making, so it is very exciting to see the finishing touches now being applied and this is the first time Andrew and his team have seen it all in one piece. The sculpture has been cast in phosphor bronze and weighs one and a half tons.
Andrew’s monumental sculpture incorporates the narrative of the Regiment’s 300 year history in a stunningly unusual design and features 4 lifesize figures – soldiers from the 1700’s,1800’s,1900’s and 2000’s. Included on ‘the edifice’ supporting the soldiers are: a portrait of Arthur Wellesley, the Regiment’s namesake -The Duke of Wellington; their Indian elephant mascot; the regimental colours with many more significant aspects of their history woven into the piece.
