DIOALOGUES

Below left, the Black Watch Memorial, Aberfeldy by Birnie Rhind, and right, the Newburgh memorial by Carrick.  The face and pose of the soldiers as they twist to draw sword and bayonet are very similar and this torque also adds a sense of dynamic movement to the composition.  As at Killin and Fraserburgh Carrick appears to have established a sculptural dialogic linking both works of art, and also the military tradition that they commmorate.
