A visual reminder the waste of War
To coincide with the 100th Anniversary since the ending of World War 1 local artist, Beverley Teske, has created a visual display depicting lost lives.

The exhibition features three large paintings, with one entitled Under Clear Blue Skies They Came to Die†also representing the 61,555 soldiers with hand-drawn crosses. Another painting also has 130,845 crosses representing all soldiers who died at Gallipoli.

>{?"It wasn't just the soldiers who died. Their deaths affected so many more people at home as well", said Ms Teske.

Bearing in mind that visual impact is one of the most powerful ways to attract attention one exhibit is made out of bottle caps, with each cap representing an Australian who died during WW1. That's an awful lot of bottle caps, which certainly succeeds in making the onlooker stop and think.
