Inspirational Captain Sir Tom Moore statue created by Bali bomb survivor
Capt Sir Tom Moore’s death prompted a nationwide campaign for a memorial in his honour. Bali bomb survivor and Yorkshire sculptor believes may have a solution. Tony Clark tells MailOnline he has created a life-size bronze sculpture of Sir Tom.
The bronze sculpture of Sir Tom had been sitting in a warehouse for months after councils near his hometown of Keighley couldn’t find a spot to display it publicly. Tony Clark, 44, a sculptor from Leeds, unveiled the £60,000 statue today two days after the 100-year-old veteran’s death from Covid-19.
Commissioned six months ago by Clark and his friend Keith Sharratt, the pair hope it will be used to ‘immortalise’ Sir Tom in his home town, Keighley, in Bradford.
