Adelaide, War Memorial

Unveiled on ANZAC day 1931, this memorial to those lost in the Great War (WWI) was wrought with much sorrow at the time. The imagery is powerful. On the North Terrace face, the Spirit of Duty calls young men and women in a prologue to war and sacrifice. On the other side, the passive epilogue sees the Spirit of womanhood with sad regrets bearing her sacrificed sons and lovers.
