    Hi Raymond,
    I have seen this simple piognant sight in so many films and pictures
    and thought nothing of it. But as you have captured it here it takes on a different meaning, it reflects a point in time that cannot and must not be repeated. Your artistic talant is outstanding.

    Hi Raymond,
    Hope you dont mind me asking, did the helmet come from an action figure, or did you make it ?.

    Thank you to you all for your kind words and incouragement , i do realy apprecate it , if fellow collectors get injoyment and a sence of what i have tried to achive in the piece i am happy .
    To my friends that asked about the materails used to make this piece , the helmet is a 1/6 Action Figure helmet , the base is Rimu a native timber here in New Zealand , the sand of course from the famous beach , i put a layer of clue on the base to the shape i wanted , then added the sand , i then sprayed the sand with a clear satin laque, this holds all the sand in place when it dries .I punched a hole threw the helmet with a punch to get the bullet hole then clued the helmet to the base . The sea is a resien , a to piece mix, you can purchase at most hobby shops , its a clear mix but i used a white water base paint to get the foaming look to the sea .
    Many thanks again guys , cheers Raymond
