This sculpture, designed by Jimmy Cosgrove, and constructed by Hector McGarva, was installed outside The House for an Art Lover in Oct 2005. It is made from cast iron and corten steel, and shows the silhouette of a shipyard worker and his dog; on the adjacent table lie the tools of his trade. The inscription on the sculpture reads “celebrate those who made the Clyde great”.
I'm a Royal Navy Veteran from Scotland and love to get out and about with my wife, susantbraithwaite.com, on our Kalkhoff e-bikes. My faithful camera, Snappy, and the ever-present Lensy (lensball) are always along for the ride to capture the beauty of Scotland 🏴. Join me as I share photos from our travels, how Lensy views the world & pretty much anything shiny ✨

Very nice! Love the dog 😀
Great photos! I wasn’t able to fully appreciate the art outwith the house that day–the flu monster was starting his attack.
