Sculpture description:
The sculpture is one of two artwork commissioned by Perth&Kinross Council for the Blaigowrie Community Campus.

The artist made several large semi-abstract bronze shapes of oak and elm to create the sculpture to resemble a bird turning directions in flight, echoing the theme of the participatory osprey artwork inside the school garden.

On one hand, the work signifies growth of new life when spring comes, on the other it contains a map of the local area. Upstream is the site of old mills, downstream is the present site for angling and a fish farm. In between lies the campus represented in a small viewfinder on the sculpture.

The artwork incorporates an interactive element to encourage pupils to explore their surroundings with two optical lenses in the sculpture.

"Kirstie Bailey from PKC’s Arts Development Service said: This is a great project. It has been a year in the making and we facilitated discussions with the steering group and enabled them to write an artist brief, interview candidates and select the successful artist.

“The artist the steering group chose, Fanny, has been brilliant. We have two significant pieces for art for the community to enjoy and are delighted with the results. We couldn’t have asked for better.” Blairgowrie Advertiser 15 Nov 2012
Artist's comments:
“For me, an artwork for a public place connects people to the particular area and gives the community a sense of the uniqueness and identity of the place.

My process involves researching the history, cultural and natural heritage, past and future usage of the place to establish a creative framework. The artwork will aim to reflect a strong sense of place expressing specific purpose, emotion and meaning.” Fanny Lam Christie

Hi Peter, I saw the `Majestic` buck that Wesley did and adored it, but I wanted something original. So we tossed ideas around with Wesley and finally decided on the owl. Wesley was so incredible to work with, providing us ongoing progress updates as he went along.
