Heighten awareness of the role of the horse in war and how it is depicted in art

Chichester Idea stage

To cast my driftwood horse sculpture in bronze as a War Horse memorial and erect it in Priory Park Chichester. I am initially asking for funds to cast the sculpture in resin. The sculpture will be a tribute to the thousands of horses sacrificed in WW1 and other conflicts. It will be an educational tool and a catalyst to raise funds. An on-going project will be based around the sculpture to educate children on the role of the horse in warfare throughout history.The sculpture will educate future generations on our long standing relationship with the horse; celebrate and preserve the history of the war horse and its role in shaping civilisations and changing lives.

What we'll deliver:

  • Donate a war horse memorial to a public park for the general public
  • Create educational material for school children
  • Educate and raise awareness on the role of the horse in history

Why it's a great idea:

The horse will be unique and will attract a lot of interest and publicity and act as a permanent reminder of the sacrifice paid by these animals alongside the brave men and women in WW1.It would make a wonderful visual centrepiece around which to tell the history.

Steps to get it done:

  • Cast the driftwood sculpture in resin to start
  • Cast resin sculpture in bronze
  • Place sculpture in Park

A bronze sculpture of a horse will be a striking permanent asset to a high profile park and enhance the status of Priory Park as a memorial park.
