Golgotha Madonna

One of five sculptures portraying the Tragic Sacrifice of Christ. The granite blocks for four of these sculptures once formed part of the Old Harbour wall in Ayr. Carved in deep relief this work shows the Madonna in anguish at the Cross. A metal bolt embedded at one side of the stone is symbolic of her pain.

The project was sponsored by Kyle and Carrick District Council and unveiled on 6th December 1979 by George Younger, then Secretary of State for Scotland.
