A while ago Allan told me he had spotted a sculpture hidden in the trees. I had a look but couldn’t see it. A few weeks ago I went back and because the trees are bare I finally could see it clearly and took some photos. Today I got round to the other side to get some photos of the sculpture from there and some detailed shots as well.
It reminds me of someone finding a Mayan Carving in the jungles.
Its actually a sculpture by Charles Anderson made in cast concrete with coloured cement. Possibly made in 1978.
Not sure if statue is quite the correct term but when Cumbernauld was originally developed there were art works scattered about it including some interesting statues. Some of these have disappeared and some have been changed but here are a couple of easy to find examples. The first one use to sit on top of a thin stone column but when they redeveloped the town centre they took that away and stood it on the wall you can see here which totally changes how you react to it.
Some photos of Cumbernauld town centre which make it look a lot worse than it is.
