Royal College of Surgeons to erect a Covid-19 memorial sculpture
August 16 2021
The Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh are to mark the successful containment of Covid-19 with the erection of a memorial comprising four life-size figures in bronze.
Crafted by sculptor Kenny Hunter the commemorative piece will replace an existing sculpture adjacent to the Playfair Hall.
Each sculpture will be supported on a foundation of concrete and stand on a 60x60m bronze base, extending to a total footprint of 2.4 x 4.2m.
Provisionally titled Your Next Breath the work has been conceived as a celebration of the compassion and resilience of healthcare workers in containing the Covid-19 outbreak.
To make way for the piece an existing 1994 sculpture, 'From Here Health' by Denys Mitchell, will be relocated.
