Saturday 19 May 2012: Man With A Sheep
We were in Galashiels this afternoon and thought this sculpture unusual for the old mill-town.
Entitled 'Man with A Sheep', this was sculpted by local artist Ann Henderson in 1971 and originally stood in the centre of the adjacent Square but moved in 1994 to look directly down Channel Street. The plaque below states:-
Presented to the Burgh of Galashiels by Mr Christopher Scott of Gala and the Scottish Arts Council November 1971
We saw it today protected by Heras fencing as the square appears to be under renovation.
