Australian serviceman

Australian Serviceman (Ray Ewers, 1958, bronze cast 1959)

One of the statues in the Australian War Memorial grounds. The artist, Ray Ewers (born 1917, NSW) was an official war artist who served in the AIF in World War II.

Ewers did a lot of work for the Australian War Memorial, including dioramas and many smaller sculptures. If you're interested in his work, try searching the AWM's web site.
