Sculpture stands guard over Cumbernauld A 10m-high steel sculpture of a female form has been erected on a hill overlooking the Scottish new town of Cumbernauld. Named Arria, after Arria Fadilla the mother of Roman Emperor Antoninus on whose orders the nearby Antonine Roman wall and fortifications where built, stands adjacent to the A80 truck road. Its proximity to the highway means more than 70,000 commuters will see the sculpture every day. International public artist Andy Scott took nearly a year to make the iconic sculpture. Prior to the erection and unveiling, the sculpture was split into 15 sections to allow it to be galvanized. Mr Scott said: “Galvanizing was the last off-site fabrication stage and finalised the aesthetic appearance. As well as the obvious protective purpose, it also brings the sculpture to life.” Diary NEW On-line Steel Building Design to EC3 Essential Steelwork Design19 & 20 October 20105, 12 & 19 October 2010 Part 3 Internet Leeds For Steel Essentials contact Stephanie Hughes 5 October 2010 26 October 2010 email: stephanie.hughes@steelconstruction.org Light Gauge Steel Design Steel Building Design to EC3 For all SCI events contact Jane Burrell Sheffield Birmingham tel: 01344 636500 email: education@steel-sci.com 12 October 2010 2 November 2010 E4 Composite Design Stability of Steel Framed Buildings Leicester Gloucester 14 October 2010 9 November 2010 Steel Essentials Steel Essentials Barceló Cardiff Angel Hotel Dublin 14 October 2010 Portal Frame Design Northampton 10 October 10NSC
