David Petersen (sculptor)
His sons Toby and Gideon are also sculptors. The family won a competition to make the National Beacon for the millennium celebrations. David Petersen designed the Welsh first class postage stamp featuring a leek carved from wood. He also created the Mametz Wood Memorial, a three-metre-high sculpture of a Welsh dragon, commemorating the actions of the 38th (Welsh) Division during the First Battle of the Somme.
