Granite 8x17x6ft 20.00 tons. Location: Now in St Andrew Square Garden.
The controversial 20 tonne Lion of Scotland granite sculpture that has been a landmark in Holyrood Park for the past four years moved on Sunday 25th April to St Andrew Square Garden in the city centre. In response to thousands of Lion supporters, Ronald Rae is delighted to tell them that the sculpture is staying in Edinburgh in the public arena only one mile from Holyrood! The Lion will be on exhibition in the Square initially for one year.
