Ronald Rae’s Man of Sorrows granite sculpture installed

In Spring 2014 Man of Sorrows moved from The Falkirk Wheel Exhibition to Warwickshire.
It is always a happy day for Ronald Rae when he moves a sculpture to its final home. He likes to be there to oversee the installation and to make sure the client is happy too. This short video shows what a convivial experience it can be.

  1. That is WONDERFUL, I am so glad that Man of Sorrows is safely installed! We have been thinking of you!

  2. What a lovely video! You must be very pleased with the new setting for the ‘ Man of Sorrows’. It is very appropriately close to a church. We had to go back to Isaiah 53 to refresh our memories about the ‘ Man of ‘Sorrows’. The sculpture is not so far away from us now. Hopefully we will get to see it sometime.

    1. Good to hear from you McKirdy family. Do go and see the sculpture. You can park right opposite it. Also take a look at the little Church. It is open every day for visitors. The words spoken by Isaiah 53 “He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief” inspired Handel when he wrote his Messiah setting this particular text to music. You can here a very beautiful rendition of this titled “He was despised” by Kathleen Ferrier.
