Below is the very rough artist's impression
which will be a life-sized relief, carved in granite
Within the next couple of weeks the 30 ton piece of Aberdeenshire granite will be uplifted from the quarry and delivered to the sculptor Bruce Walker in Kirriemuir, Angus. There is a lot of work and artistic talent involved in turning a 30 ton piece of granite into an approximately 22 ton sculpture. A special trolley is being made by the haulage and crane company to move the granite inside the studio when it comes off the transport. Wendy Turner will be visiting the sculptor as he works to get photographs as the monument progresses. The club is being mentioned in the Scottish Parliament for our work in achieving this with the help of Viridor-Credits.
