Extract from Margaret Watson artist statement
Little Soldier refers to the courage of children who were affected by polio in their young lives, and those that suffered other serious diseases also. They didn’t have any strong armour to wear or deadly weapons to use against their illnesses. Surviving must have depended on the inner strength of those children, the love of their families and the skill of the medical staff who looked after them. I expect that strength must again be called upon by those who are now enduring the late effects of polio.
