Norfolk Veterans Home
Sutton Betti Sculptures
Life size Korean War soldier cast in durable aluminum for Norfolk Veterans Home. The sculpture weighs only 125 lbs and is installed on a 9 foot tall black granite pedestal that is laser etched with images and text about the “Forgotten War”.
To illustrate, remember and honor the Korean War with a sculpture and pedestal. Since so much is known about WWII and Vietnam, not many memorials honor the war in between these two. I worked closely with my client and the family of a local veteran to make this sculpture a symbol of remembrance for a forgotten war while also honoring a veteran whose family sponsored the statue.
