Our Lemnos Gallipoli Memorial Statue - Peter Corlett's Model


These are some image of the model of the beautiful memorial statue that we will erect in Port Melbourne during the Centenary Year - 2015.
It key features embody the most endearing aspect of Lemnos' role in the Anzac story - the nurses and the sick and wounded soldiers. Inspired by the many moving images taken on the Island in 1915, our sculptor Peter Corlett, OAM, has created a wonderfull and striking image of healing and care during war.
The statues will rest on a stone plinth or catafalque, which will be adorned with images representing Lemnos - including the names in Greek and English of the villages that became so well-known and welcoming to the Anzacs all those years ago.
In this way, the memorial will represent the links between Lemnos and Anzac - 1915 - 2015.
We hope that there will be a identical sister memorial erected on Lemnos as a companion to our own in port Melbourne - linking Lemnos and Australia.
If you could like to make a contribution to our fundraising campaign or like some more information, please download our donation and information form by clicking here.
We hope you enjoy these images.
