Andy Scott Stride is a partner piece to River Spirit. ‘Stride’ is a man in motion rising from the earth and faces north towards Ochil hills. Where River Spirit is to water, he is to earth and sky. Stride is a hugely dynamic creation suggesting motion, flight and nature (trees in hands) which is an interesting contradiction given its metal construction.
UPDATE: February 20, 2011 A stolen car crashed through the roundabout and mowed Stride down. He was eventually rebuilt, but at near half the size and facing west towards Stirling.
