The setting sun is framed by an arch or portal carrying further symbolic images and lettering. At the centre is the ‘sacred heart’ of the memorial – the altar. This inner space will be suitable for both formal ceremonies and smaller-scale commemoration. design includes 100 stainless-steel elements with solar-powered lights.
