Upright Motive No.1: Glenkiln Cross 1955-56 (LH 377)

bronze
height 335.5cm


One of the upright motifs, without my knowing why, turned into a cross-form and is now in Scotland. We call it ‘Glenkiln Cross’, because the Glenkiln Farm Estate is where the first cast of it is placed. From a distance it looks rather like one of the old Celtic crosses.
