North Uist Fish
Taigh Chearsabhagh Art Centre, North Uist, Outer Hebrides. This sculpture, the William MacGillivray Bi-centenary Sculpture Project on North Uist, is a three dimensional sculpture of a mackerel (once common in the Outer Hebrides, now less so). Funded by the Scottish Arts Council and Scottish Natural Heritage, it is five metres long, and constructed directly on to the rock. The mosaic is composed of: local pebbles (white marble, black basalt), shells, and sea-worn glass. The sculpture was constructed to withstand being submerged by high tides.
