Wounded Warrior Dog VII, Under the Flag
Acrylic paint on carved poplar wood
13" x 40" x 24"

The seventh and final wounded warrior in the series is inspired by the image of a flag draped casket coming off a plane. The handler's casket was followed by a smaller box carrying his dog who died with him. This allegory honors those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
