Thanks Alex, I had never walked up close to that statue before - it has a lot more going on than I thought.   The man on the other end of that hand is very moving..

I have been up close to that but never seen that before. Strange how when you look at something like that it really brings home to you the reality of war.

Another great picture LG

Got to playing with Nik Software Silver EFX Pro

It's a good wee plugin that. NIK software isn't agreeing too well with CS4 right enough.

Brilliant shot.

I've lived in Swinton for 5 years and haven't been up to the horse once. Strange that.

A large ditch filled with water is at the front of the waste ground (found that out the hard way)

Aye there used to be deep water warning up that way.

I will venture up one day.

Andy Scott



Andy Scott's 'Rise'









Andy Scott's workshop with a new sculpture he was working on

Doorstop

Super stuff Robert .. very, very nice indeed.

How did you manage to wangle a visit to the workshop, If you don't mind me asking?
cybers

Some of the sculptures he creates are lifelike but some of the fantasy stuff are just mind blowing..
To date though his scaled Kelpies is my favourite and if the 100ft tall renditions ever materialise they will be fantastic too
Robert Pool

Andy was part of the 'Open Doors' last year and a nicer man you will never meet, a great Glasweigen

Andy Scott's miniature Kelpie Heads. These resin cast 30cm (approx  1/100th scale) miniatures were made for wind tunnel testing, as well as for
working models to be used by the landscape architects, British Waterways, Andy himself, and other associated professional bodies in the development
of the 'Helix' project.

They are now part of my collection

A thing, Maggie's Cancer Respite Centre, Western Infirmary.

Looks very like it .. perhaps the two errant stands at the tip are signifying the illness.

Or perhaps I'm being an arty ponce.

Another of Charles Jencks sculptures from Kew Gardens.

Heavy Horse



cybers

Still my favourite piece is the heavy horse...
Just wish they would have used imaginative mood lighting for night time.
LowLight

That would look good. Maybe a bit distracting to motorists though.

I've lived a bawhair away from it for 5 years and that's the first time I've been up close. It's a beast.

Why don`t you just add your own imaginative mood and lighting ?

Oh that would detract too much ... let me fill in your next post ffs...

Portable flood lights, fog machine and colour LED lighting and you'll be set

Tried a fog machine setup already at the southside necropolis .... Was a lovely still night but still could not keep the fog where i wanted it ....
then the tube brigade showed up so was best to pack up n leave.

Any one know the name of this one? looks like Andy Scotts work, but not listed on his web site.

just got a email back from Andy saying it is one of his and it's at the entrance to the West of Scotland Science Park up on the far end of Maryhill Road going out towards Bearsden.

Hope this helps

Nice one Bobby. I wasn't really on much doubt about it's paternity !
Looks like we will have to have a competition to give it a name.
Booby Hoop-la ????
Robert Pool

I have no doubt it has a name, l just forgot to ask him...l will find out the next time l speak to him.

My own thought is that because its in the Science Park it may represent a figure surrounded by an electrical coil or light bulb, open to interpretation l guess until we find out more about it.

Statue located rear of Clydebuilt Maritime Museum, next to Braehead.  Any-one any idea what it's supposed to depict?
