Fisher Square lies between the Lion Yard Shopping Centre and the Guildhall. Visit this square and you will see a giant rock, carved to look rather like a brain. This is in fact a Finnish glacial granite boulder, which has been sculpted by the artist Peter Randall-Page.
Titled Between the Lines, and installed in 2007, it was commissioned by Grosvenor Group, and is one of three Randall-Page sculptures in the city. The other two are Theme and Variation, I, II, III which is part of the sculpture promenade at the Fitzwilliam Museum, and Confluence, a granite and water installation commissioned for the Ninewells Housing complex, to the south of the city.
There are many other works of art by Randall-Page around the country. To find out more, visit his website, https://www.peterrandall-page.com
