The Art of Kalat

DO YOU  KNOW WHAT THIS IS?  OR WHERE THIS IS? 

This statue currently stands outside the Iraqi palace, now home to the 4th Infantry

division.   It will eventually be shipped home and put in the memorial museum in
Fort  Hood, Texas
The statue was created by an Iraqi artist named  Kalat, who for years was forced
by Saddam Hussein to make the many hundreds of bronze busts of Saddam that
dotted Baghdad

Kalat was so grateful for the America's liberation of his country; he melted 3 of the

heads of the fallen Saddam and made the statue as a memorial to the American
soldiers and their fallen warriors

Kalat worked on this memorial night and day for several months.

To the  left of the kneeling soldier is a  small Iraqi girl giving the soldier comfort  as he mourns the loss of his comrade in arms.

GOD BLESS AMERICA!
