Mussel shell for Musselburgh

There’s a new sculpture of a Mussel shell appeared in town, funded by Tesco apparently, and I have to say that it is rather lovely.

Sculptor Michael Johnson’s work, called ‘Memory and Reflection’, is 12ft high and 6ft feet wide.

The stainless steel sculpture depicts aspects of Musselburgh’s history with images of agriculture, people, connections to the sea, the river and the Romans. The face of the sculpture is mirror polished and reflects whatever stands before it.

I hope you have enjoyed today.
