The caves in which the carvings were found are not open to the public. The carvings were made while Canadian soldiers waited to move to the forward trenches before the historic Battle of Vimy Ridge in 1917. The latest technology in 3D laser scanning and high resolution photography made it possible to bring these carvings home as a very up close and personal reminder of the impact made by Canadian soldiers during the war.
