WW1 centenary: Sand in your Eye project

In August, Yorkshire based sand artist Jamie Wardley and the Sand In Your Eye Team created a 10 tonne sand sculpture at Hebden Royd Town Hall as part of the WW1 centenary.

The piece is called Loss is Eternal.

The sculpture depicts the moment when a wife of a soldier opens a letter common during WW1 with the words: "We regret to inform you your husband has been killed in action."

The sculpture itself was commissioned by HRTC, whilst the film was commissioned by HRTC and kindly sponsored by Bankfield Museum.
