KILLIN

Originally Michelangelo's statue was intended to be placed high up on the butresses of Florence Cathedral but so impressed were the leaders of the small city state with the work they decided it must stand in the public square with its defiant glare pointing southwards towards Rome, sending a powerful message to the rapacious Borgias.  Similarly Carrick's soldier glared down on approaching visitors, a moving sentinel for a small highland village.
