(Greenock, 2000)

Monarch of Auchmountain Glen was commissioned by Cloch Housing Association in 2000 as new houses were constructed in the area.

Made from girders, and reflecting the work many local people had done in the shipyards, it also celebrates the local environment.

The scul?ture has now been adopted by the pupils of All Saints Primary School, Inverclyde and is in the process of being restored.
