This piece represents the Celtic Cross memorial to Sir William Wallace at Robroyston, Glasgow. The monument is the work of Stewart McGlashen, Sculptor of Edinburgh and was raised in 1900, paid for by public subscription from the efforts of Rev David McCrea and the Scottish Patriotic Society.
The monument was unveiled by Miss Emmeline McKerlie, a descendent of Kerlie, Wallace trusted friend who was slain during the melee of Wallace’ capture.
The cross, which was inspired St Martins Celtic Cross on Iona, marks the site of the house in which Wallace was betrayed and captured in 1305. From here he was taken first to Dumbarton Castle where he was held by his betrayer, Sir John Monteith, for a month before beginning the long journey south to London where he was subject to a corrupt trial and subsequently executed.
The cross is 20 feet high and of pink Aberdeenshire granite.The shaft of the cross bears a Claymore sword, a lion rampant shield and the motto 'In Defence'
With my scale depiction of the original cross, I have used colour to highlight the carved details to create this very attractive version.
This piece comes ready with a hanging hole on the rear to enable it to be hung flush to the wall from a pin-nail.
Hand painted. Resin cast reproduction of Stuart Fellowes’ original sculpture.
