Commissioned as the inaugurary sculpture of 'Waterfronts', an outdoor sculpture display of new commissions along the south-east coast, led by Margate’s Turner Contemporary museum. The sculpture is a life-size figure modelled on the sculptor's friend, Daniel Taylor, a soldier who served with the Royal Artillery in Basra during the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The work is an antiwar memorial, and serves as a symbol of peace.
