One of the great war photographers,
Don McCullin, at the Bishop's Palace, to unveil a new sculpture "The Weight of Our Sins" earthhart.deviantart.com/art/T…
It's a sculpture by the late Josefina De Vasconcellos, and was gifted to the Bishop's Palace, by Prof G. Romaine Hervey in memory of the sculptor, his friend.
The sculpture shows eight children, and they represent the wrongs the children of the world still suffer.
Child & Sexual Abuse, Famine, Aids, Infanticide, War & Land Mines, Genocide, Child Labour, Homeless & Drug Abuse.
To coincide with this, there's an exhibition of Don's work, in the Conference Room of the Palace.

Today, four children were blown up by an IED (Improvised Explosive Device) in Afghanistan.
