Edessa Messiah

One of five sculptures portraying the Tragic Sacrifice of Christ. This sculpture was based on the Turin Shroud which was found in the city of Edessa in 544 AD believed to be the burial cloth of Jesus of Nazareth.

The granite blocks for four of these sculptures once formed part of the Old Harbour wall in Ayr. The project was funded by Kyle and Carrick District Council and opened in 1979 by George Younger then Secretary of State for Scotland.
