The Deposition – The Tragic Sacrifice of Christ

One of five sculptures portraying the Tragic Sacrifice of Christ, the centrepiece of which is this deep relief of the Deposition of Christ – Christ being taken down from the cross.

The deposition is a complex work which Rae began at the age of eighteen and partly carved during his time at Edinburgh College of Art when he was influenced both by Michelangelo and cubist forms. He finished the piece twelve years later at Rozelle Park, Ayr.

The granite for this sculpture came from Kirkmabreck Quarry in Creetown.
