The Grieving Mother will be unveiled by the Arch of Victory/Avenue of Honour committee this year. Recently they removed the fence around it but it's not yet completed.
The project is expected to cost about $250,000 and will be constructed on two vacant blocks adjacent to the Arch of Victory, purchased by the AoV/AoH committee in 2014.
The centrepiece of the garden will be a six-foot-tall statue of a grieving mother holding a photo of a lost soldier, designed by iconic sculptor Peter Corlett.That is not in place yet.
