ID Monument

This looks like a fairly high-ranking airman of 1914-1918 vintage. Can anyone tell me (a) is this a genuine monument and (b) if so, where is it ? Thanks.

Re: ID Monument

Has Ann been busy with the sugarcraft again?

Last time I was at the Parthenon I don't recall this particular bust.... although they probably all looked a bit like it after a glass or three of Ouzo.

Re: ID Monument

Andy,

I think the background and the bust are not necessarily associated. It was artwork produced for a Simple Minds album way back when Pontius was a pilot and the band are now enquiring about possible origins. If it is a genuine memorial hopefully someone here may recognise it.
