Boring war memorial

This is in the middle of the road next to a war museum and the old post office and Anglia TV. Its an Angel on a plinth. The road is painted like a sea of cars around her.
War and oil are a pair. If we stopped needing oil and cars there would be less need for war memorials. If Britain had a memorial for every war it has had there wouldn't be any room for anything. Trophy's of war, like medals for winning a race. Idealizing the dead, sending your own family to be killed is a very strange thing. Then saying these memorials are to remind us not to have another one, when the country is constantly in one. This means that these statues do not work. What about a few peace sculptures around the city's and having peace parades.
The painting is not for sale but if I did decide to sell it it would go for £6800,000,000.00 with an added bonus for myself of half a million pounds.
