King of the Castle
King of the Castle
The official name of this sculpture is "King of the Castle", but it is also referred to as the Castlemilk Dome (although, strictly, it is located in Fernhill); it is known locally as "Boy Wonder" (the figure is wearing a cape). See also NS6159 : King of the Castle (detail).

Completed in 1999, and made of reconstituted stone and resin, it is one of several works of public art by Kenny Hunter; some of his other works are listed here: NS5964 : "Skull" (a companion piece to "Cherub").

It is also one of several public artworks that were commissioned to be placed at points seen as gateways into the Castlemilk Estate; for other such works, see NS5958 : Southern Arch and NS5959 : On the Up and Up.
