SOM#035, Bruce Moore, Eternal Vigilance - Destruction, 1947

From the collection of John Birks

Numbers Issued: 764 Bronze, 50 Silver

FROM THE ARTIST

In the wild, vigilance is a safeguard against destruction by the predatory species of the animal world. Man too, must be ever vigilant to protect himself and his liberties from destruction. I have chosen the deer as the symbol of vigilance since this animal could not survive without its keen perception of approaching danger. The vulture following in the wake or moral and material chaos, symbolizes destruction.
