Brief : To build, draw and carve the animal frieze.
Richard Holliday and Harry Gray worked with David Backhouse to realise his concept for the Animals in War monument. Once the solid Portland stone wall was made Harry Gray was asked to completely re draw the animal frieze and he and Richard Holliday decided to interpret the animal forms in a naturalistic way which contrasts the treatment of the bronze animals by David Backhouse.
