Rob Mullholland was chosen to design this major piece of public art as part of the Imagine Alloa project, now situated at the top of Alloa High Street.
The sculptures are made from marine grade polished stainless steel which has a highly mirrored surface. Each figure standing at over 2.7 meters and nearly a ton in weight creates its own shape and form.
The polished mirrored profiles constantly alter in appearance as the light and weather changes throughout the day. The mirrored surfaces are slightly distorted, this was intentional as Rob wanted to create a more interesting reflection and to invite the viewer to look into this altered image of their surroundings in a new way.
They are interactive and allow the public to create their own interpretation and meaning. In essence the figures stand passively absorbing and reflecting the people and day to day life of the town, capturing and momentarily recording the constant flow of daily life. The sculptures celebrate modernity change and growth of the town.

Alloa, a lively market town, has recently benefited from a regeneration programme which has led to enhanced streetscapes, enhanced shop fronts and public art installations.
With a good mix of cafes and local and high street names, Alloa is also developing a name for itself as a home for independent, artisan shops selling creative goods made locally.
This bold medieval keep may look forbidding but inside it’s full of art and riches – not to mention intriguing tales. The tower dates back to the 14th century and was built to guard a strategically important ferry crossing on the nearby River Forth.
It became the ancestral seat of the Erskine family, the Earls of Mar and Kellie. This family have played a pivotal part in Scotland’s history through the centuries and were loyal supporters of the Stuart monarchs. Mary, Queen of Scots and her son, James VI, both spent part of their childhood here under the guardianship of the Erskine family.
Alloa Tower was lavishly updated by John Erskine, 6th Earl of Mar, who created an 18th-century mansion within the ancient walls.
