ADVANCE FOR USE SUNDAY, NOV. 11, 2012 AND THEREAFTER - This undated photo provided by artist Marcus Eriksen shows his "My Angel in the Desert" sculpture. Eriksen was a young Marine sergeant during the Gulf War, riding with a convoy to Kuwait City, when he encountered the Iraqi soldier. It was the first dead body he'd seen. The image was haunting, the experience unforgettable. But it took more than a decade before he started welding the memory into art. (AP Photo/Marcus Eriksen)
