The man on the right in the picture is Sandy Irvine Robertson (1942-1999), founder of the Scottish Business Achievements Award Trust. This avatar of him was made by Lucy Poett.

Royal Mile School: Cow Visitor

This is one of the Cow Parade that decorated Edinburgh for three months in 2006: for that short period of time, statues of females outnumbered statues of males. That’s all I can tell you: the Royal Mile Primary School website has no information about their cow in the playground, and the Cow Parade website has no information available about who purchased which cows. The name of the cow and the artist ought to be on the base of the statue, but the playground is not open (quite reasonably) to curious adults who just want to look at a cow’s bottom.

I took this photo here. It’s available on Redbubble:Visitor Not Reporting to School Office.
