*Empty Chairs* by Mike Yorke
This evolving artwork is on display at Warwick Castle, each little chair represents a soldier killed in Afghanistan. Regardless of political veiwpoint the loss of human life on those left behind cannot be underestimated. The empty chairs represent the absence of a loved one.
The artist Mike Yorke makes the little chairs as the grim toll rises , tragically there were only 419 chairs there that day , he needed to make 3 more as more casualties were announced that day.
