The sculpture shows Trevor with 2 children. The one year old asleep in the crook of his arm is based on Trevor's own story of a baby who slept on his lap throughout the first flight. The boy is a boy of around 6 and is clutching a toy plane, this is to represent memories of home but also the first group of children that Trevor brought back travelled by plane. Trevor is shown relaxed and in casual clothes because contemporary information indicates this is how he was most comfortable. It would not have been right to have attired him in a formal suit. The Children are also relaxed because there are many tales of how he put everyone at their ease even in these very stressful situations.
