Moving Holmes Picardy PlaceAdd to Lightbox Download
The sculpture of Sherlock Holmes by former pop-artist Gerald Laing is being moved from it's home on Picardy Place, yards from the birth place of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
The move of the sculpture is to accommodate road and tram works that are taking place in Edinburgh. The statue will be moved to Nairn at Black Isle Bronze Ltd by the artists son, Farquhar Laing where it will stay for two years until it returns to Edinburgh.
