Burns Statue Stirling

Burns Statue Stirling

A bronze statue of Burns was erected in a commanding position between the old and new town of Stirling, formed by the triangular plot between the Corn Exchange Road and Dumbarton Road, and unveiled on 23rd September 1914.

The statue was the gift of Provost Bayne to his adoptive town and it was unveiled by his daughter.

Burns is shown poised in an easy but graceful attitude. Albert Hemstock Hodge (1875-1918), born in Glasgow but latterly working in London, gave a fine conception of the poet in his Edinburgh period.

The Aberdeen granite pedestal, standing twelve feet high, has a frieze on top of the die in raised lettering
Then gently scan your brother man,
still gentler sister woman.
The pedestal bears four bronze panels in bas relief, showing Burns at the plough, The Cotter's Saturday Night (the expectant wee things), Tam O' Shanter at Alloway Kirk and The Guiding Star.

Panel Panel

The pedestal was executed by Kirkpatrick Brothers of Manchester while the statue and panels were cast by A. B. Burton of Thames Ditton, Surrey.
