Clackmannan

This sculpture by Andy Scott was installed on Marywood roundabout, on the outskirts of Clackmannan in August 2009, and gives drivers a fantastic welcome as they enter the county.

The brief was for an artwork which marked the entrance into Clackmannanshire as seen from the new bridge connection and should somehow celebrate that new crossing.

The two figures stand atop two halves of a steel arc which are intended to look as though they are connecting. The figures reach out and make the connection and each holds a symbolic element.

The male figure holds a crown, which is a feature from Clackmannanshire’s heraldic coat of arms. The female holds a draped circle of 23 stars, which represent the flag of the European Union, the suggestion being that Clackmannanshire is welcoming Europe and visitors from the east via the new bridge.

The composition creates an archway which frames the road beyond the roundabout leading into the county.
