Burning Bush sculpture, 121 George Street
Burning Bush sculpture, 121 George Street
The Church of Scotland's emblem above the entrance to its administrative offices in George Street. The Latin motto "nec tamen consumebatur" translates as "Yet it was not consumed". The biblical bush seems intended to recall the failed attempts by Royalists and Episcopalians to extinguish Presbyterianism in the 17th century. It was first used as a printer's device in "The Principal Acts of The [General] Assembly" published in 1691.
