A surprise addition to our local woods is this wood carving of the fossil
Cephalaspis scotica .
It is one of a number of fossils found in Wolf’s Hole Quarry in Mine woods, Bridge of Allan and a reason why the area is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSI).
I have no idea who the artist is and there is no plaque to commemorate his or her work, which is a pity. Maybe one will appear in due course.
Meanwhile everyone who stumbles across this quite startling sculpture is pleasantly surprise though one man did say he thought it was “ quite rude” until he realised it was meant to represent an ancient fossil found in the quarry.
