A photo post today. Our blog pal Wednesday’s Childhas featured a few excellent posts about statues lately and I decided to put together a post featuring a few of my own favourite statues. The first features Donald Dewar, which stands at the top of Buchanan Street here in Glasgow. At his feet protests and marches often gather, as well as folk just watching the city pass by or eating their lunch. This statue features in Loose Ends in the New Year.
I have tried to feature a few of women, much underrepresented in public monuments. Glasgow currently has just four statues of women; in Edinburgh there are more statues of dogs than women. I always make a point of stopping by the Mary Barbour statue at Govan Cross. We need more like her. Anyway, enjoy.
