Ghost Sculptures Of WW1 Soldiers Erected In An Old English Cemetery

Unusual sculptures installed in the village cemetery in Slimbridge near the church of St. John. Where British soldiers who died during the First World War are buried.

The sculptures are made in the form of ghostly figures of 11 men in full size. They were created by Jackie Lantelli from the wire in tribute to the people who gave their lives for the country.

Sculptures were set up in the cemetery for the 100th anniversary of the end of the war. Ms Lantelli said she had always been “passionate about remembering on Remembrance Day”.

“I make wire sculptures of fairies, and I had the idea that I could make some wire soldiers that look ghostlike with a very thin layer of chicken wire.”
