Ronald Rae’s latest sculptures Baby Elephant and Gorilla Family were exhibited from August till November 2015 at Edinburgh Airport’s new plaza to welcome visitors to the Festival City. The site for the Baby Elephant was next to Africa on the world map on the tarmac making a powerful statement about the plight of these wild and wonderful creatures. The Baby Elephant is now on exhibition at the West End of Edinburgh and the Gorilla Family has joined the Ronald Rae Exhibition at the Falkirk Wheel where ten sculptures are displayed.
The plaza links the East Terminal to the Tram Terminus. The tram goes to the city centre with a stop at St Andrew Square where visitors can see another Ronald Rae endangered species – the 20 tonne Lion.
