Alexandria-Dundee Commemoration

Alexandria’s sister city committee requested a sculpture of my own creation and design to commemorate 30 years of friendship with our sister city of Dundee, Scotland. This glass casting depicts a square mast ship and a Conestoga wagon. These Scottish ships sailed to Alexandria to bring materials to America, where they docked at the port that is the Torpedo Factory today. Their sails were made out of Indian jute and woven in Dundee. This same fabric was also used to cover the ribs of Conestoga wagons used by white American settlers. This sculpture was presented to the Lord and Lady Provost of Dundee in 2004.
