She also told us about the times she had been in Nepal and the inspiration she had obtained from the circular movement of the saris worn by the ladies, who seemed to do everything while their men did little. This statue is a combination of a tree shape and a lady in a sari.
She then went on to her current project. She has been commissioned by the Gurka Regiment to sculpt a Gurka in Afganistan battle dress, carrying his rifle. It will commemorate 200 years of the Gurkas. The statue will be 6 foot tall, and on a 6 foot plinth. It will be sited in Folkestone in about three months time. The picture above shows her working on the statue which will then be cast in a metal which hopefully will cope with the onslaught of the sea air, and the local seagulls. This is a very brief note of her work, and an internet search of Rebecca Hawkins will prove very interesting.
