This is yet another amazing sculpture in the modern town of Glenrothes in central Fife. As mentioned in other photographs, Glenrothes has a number of fascinating modern sculptures dotted around the town.
I think locals take them for granted and hardly notice them, but if you are in Glenrothes it's worth going round to see them and getting some interesting photographs. Most of the Kingdom of Fife has ancient castles and palaces, so these modern sculptures are quite a contrast.
Malcolm Robertson is the artist who created this evocative piece of birds in flight. It is a shame that it is "stuck up" against a rather ugly office block and not given a more appropriate setting.
Fife is home to a wonderful Bird Sanctuary on the shores of Loch Leven and at various times of the year you will see flocks of birds (eg geese) flying 'into' Fife or heading 'south' for the winter. So this sculpture is very appropriate.
