Famine sculpture by Ronald Rae

Granite: 4x4x4ft 2.00 tons. Location: St. John’s Church, Princes Street, Edinburgh. Gifted.


An expressive sculpture of a man on the ground pleading with a begging bowl. Carved in response to the famine in Ethiopia in 1994, the bowl fills with water when it rains and dries up when there is a drought.

Rae donated the sculpture to the Church.
