Right - 'Fox and Pheasant' by Phyllis Bone. Bone was a near contemporary of Carrick's and a lifelong friend. Born 1894 she joined the Edinburgh College of Art in 1912 and gained a European wide reputation as an Animalier or animal sculptor and it was through her involvement in work on the Scottish National War Memorial in Edinburgh Castle that she managed to get Carrick involved in the project, initially carving the virtues of 'Courage' and 'Justice' for the external niches. In 1944 she was elected the first ever female academician at the RSA. She was also responsible for the animals carved on the face of the King's Buildings at Edinburgh University where Carrick's figure of 'Geology' can also be seen. The photograph was supplied courtesy of the Stewartry Museum in Kirkcudbright where she settled. The museum has a few of the artists smaller works on display as well as collections of WWI posters and is well worth a visit.
