An uplifting few minutes of escape from the current ‘festivities’. I shall be re-playing it more than once. All good wishes, and thank you.

Thank you Lesley – a lovely response – thank you for taking the time out to watch the slideshow.

The slideshow is best watched “full-screen”. Once the slideshow starts, click on the “four arrow” symbol at the bottom right of the slideshow. When it has finished you can click on the escape button (normally top left on a keyboard) to get back to normal viewing mode.

Trust Ronnie to inject a note of humour into timeless works of art. Congratulations and a happy Christmas to you and Pauline.

Ronnie and Pauline,
I loved the show – recall with pleasure seeing most of them in the sculpting in Cramond and will enjoy looking at it again and again.
Best wishes to you both for 2012

We have watched the slideshow three times now and have noticed something new each time. It must be unusual to see The Fallen Christ in snow and it seems to bring out the lettering and the different colours in the granite. Many thanks for sending this lovely slideshow. Wishing you all the very best for 2012 from the McKirdy family.

Thank you McKirdys. Glad you enjoyed the slideshow. Re. the snow on the Fallen Christ sculpture highlighting the letters I.N.R.I. Isn’t Nature wonderful playing its part in finishing the stone – the lichens in summer and snow in winter. However snow in winter on Iona is rare. I think this was the first time heavy snow was recorded on Iona. Wishing you all the best of everything in 2012.
