As Veterans Day in the US and Armistice Day in the UK draw to a close, here is a reminder of the cost these brave soldiers pay from street miniaturist Slinkachu. The newest street intervention, located in London, is entitled Scars and based on a quote from Douglas MacArthur – “the soldier, above all other people, prays for peace, for he must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.” A close up (seen after the jump) will reveal the symbol of the Poppy Appeal (the Royal British Legion’s charity) pinned through the heart of a veteran, medals and all.
