On behalf of Mehtabell Projects, the large-scale sculpture of of a toy soldier dressed in army fatigue shorts and helmet the boy is monumental in size but poignantly vulnerable, crouched down and cowering, head in hands. The grand scale of this nostalgic toy from childhood captured in a state of vulnerability is a moving reminder of the traumas of war and its victims urging the viewer to consider if this boy represents the lost or future generation.
