"Skull" (a companion piece to "Cherub")
"Skull" (a companion piece to "Cherub")
A pair of bronze sculptures, powder-coated with gold, can be seen on opposite corners of the Tron Theatre. Together, they form a single work: Cherub/Skull. "Cherub" was installed first; of the two, it has the more prominent location, and can be seen here: NS5964 : Trongate building.

The other half of this work is "Skull"; it was installed in the winter of 1998, and is located in a much quieter street. (For a different view of the skull, see: NS5964 : Skull-pture.)

Both works are by Kenny Hunter and were cast by Powderhall Bronze (for more works by the same artist, see: NS6064 : Graham Square - The Calf, NS6159 : King of the Castle, NS5865 : Citizen Firefighter, NJ9308 : Youth With Split Apple, and NS7255 : "Four Children" - two of the busts).
