Grapevine Texas, 76051 Get Directions
“The Homecoming” is a two-piece sculpture which depicts a soldier returning from service to a loving embrace. The statue weighs 700 lbs.; the arch 800 lbs. It is 1 1/8 lifesize, although the shoes are somewhat larger representing that the couple had “big shoes to fill.” Each element – from the watch with no face to the ordinal directions at the statue’s base — have special meaning to the artist and to the viewer. The arch bears symbols of military branches of service and faiths. The faces in the seashells on the arch represent the soldiers’ experiences in exotic lands.
