I saw the pictures of it and I thought "gosh...wish Clydebank has something like that". It is a very clever sculpture and I do like it. Hope to go see it when I'm home in May.

I like the look of it too!
There are some great sculptures around in Greenock - this adds usefully to the 'collection', doesn't it?
(If you have the time, and get the chance - it would be lovely to see more from a few photo-shots... :)
Although No pressure intended!)

Alistair - Thinking of the Titan Crane - you could say that Clydebank's 'very own', original sculpture is almost the best of all - and QE2 would be the absolute best!

Extremely well done!  It captures so many themes such as Clydebank shipbuilding as noted by the ribbed nature of the ships bow representation.  Proud Clyde-built ships at sea with the bow wave representation.  And then there is of course the "Queens'" livery depicted in the white, black and red colors.  I would hope the red line separating the white and black has some meaning.  Perhaps the blood sweat and tears of the the shipbuilders?

I've see a lot of ugly sculptures in public places but this one is a complete exception.  Well done to all involved!

Very good, and the exact curvature ( despite what they say about it being general ) is undeniably that of the bow of the QE2, is it not?

I do not understand "Modern" sculpture!
But I like that!
