Normandy, Hector Ortega – $6,500

Normandy- Based upon the German anti-tank obstacle defenses made of angle iron, which were deployed in WW II by various combatants. Historical references have been embedded into the actual piece of sculpture the waves cut into the beam represent each beach in the battle of Normandy (Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword). The large end of the tapering beam represents the beginning of the war and slowly tapers until the war was won. Normandy is dedicated to all that have ever had an obstacle placed in their lives and found the courage to overcome.
