Contemplace, 2007, stainless steel, stone by George Wyllie MBE (1921-2012, lived and worked Gourock)

This scul?ture is the artist’s idea for a Scottish throne. It combines references to the ancient Stone of Destiny, a stone used for the coronations of monarchs, and Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928). It pays homage to the design style of Mackintosh chairs which are characterised by a tall back section.
