Based on a news photo of a soldier rescuing an old man in the aftermath of the 2012 tsunami at Fukushima. Nearly 17,000 people died, 6,000 were injured, and over 2,600 are missing after this tragedy. I was struck by the nobility of the act. Sculpted from myrtle with a walnut base. Finished with analine dye, wood bleach, and acrylic polyurethane.
