France 1914 - Black Marble

Visit The People’s Palace Museum, Glasgow  to see the moving Sculpture ‘FRANCE 1914’ created by professional Sculptor Simon Burns-Cox. The sculpture will be on display until March 2017. It is made of black and gold portoro marble and was made in aid of Poppyscotland to mark the ending of the First World War.  The sculpture was designed to represent the last tree on the battlefront and a symbol of hope. From March 2017-18, FRANCE 1914 will then move onto Kelvingrove Art Gallery, Glasgow for the year and will then be displayed at The Riverside Museum, Glasgow from 2018-19.  At the end of the three year exhibition, the sculpture will be auctioned in aid of the charity.  Expression of interest should be made to Simon Burns-Cox or PoppyScotland.
