Sacrifice sculpture


A tribute to the fourteen men from Belper who died on the first day of the Somme.

Sacrifice was created to be an integral part of a production "The Fourteen". The individually cut black spears were built up through the performance, revealing the face of Lance Corporal Jim Green, one of the fourteen.

Now, Sacrifice is to be built from steel and stone and is to be positioned in the Belper Memorial Gardens representing the 100 year commemorations of all soldiers from Belper who died in WW1.

A tribute to the teenagers of Belper who fought and died during World War One.


In 1915, over 30 of the names that appear on the Belper War Memorial were between the ages of 15 and 18 years. This tribute depicts 13 local boys of the same age positioned around the historic Belper Mill Complex. By connecting with today's generation we hope to highlight the horrors these young men endured at such a young age.
