Very interesting.
Sad that I can't see any name of the designer mentioned on the information panel though.

I have not found anything about the designer.

There is a lot more about this sculpture here http://www.covenanter.org.uk/DalrySculpture/

I was passing it today, camera in hand and got a better picture.

Just re-reading this thread and I noticed in the first information panel, last sentence on left - 'Bill Dunigan, a member of the (Scottish Covenanters) association designed and gifted the sculpture as a memorial to the covenanters.'

Also found this useful page about the sculpture http://www.covenanter.org.uk/DalrySculpture/
