the letter the letter
A captain, out of ammunition in the midst of battle, reaches in desperation towards the enemy with all he has left: a letter from his beloved.

33” figurine by Simon Willmott.

This poignant figurine is a limited edition of 11 bronze or bronze resin casts. It is exhibited this year and in 2014 to commemorate the centenary of the start of the First World War.

Currently exhibited at Raw Sienna Gallery - 10-12 King Street, Knutsford, Cheshire, WA16 6DL

For enquiries, please telephone 01824 704092 or 07771 693150 or Contact Simon.

The figurine is 33" tall, with a limited edition of 11, available in a bronze resin casting (£1,100), or in bronze (cost on request).

The sculpture is currently exhibited at Raw Sienna, Knutsford.

This figurine is a study for a much larger planned sculptural installation. The life-size piece will feature the captain as the central subject, with the wider scene around him. Simon is currently seeking investment in this monumental piece. For enquiries, please telephone 01824 704092 or 07771 693150 or Contact Simon..

Simon Willmott

In 2003, I set up my studio in North Wales to bring sculpting from a hobby to a full-time focus. My latest piece, "the letter", was produced to coincide with Remembrance Day on 11/11/11.

It is currently is being exhibited in galleries to commemorate the 2014 centenary of the beginning of the First World War. For more details about this piece, please get in touch.
