Edinburgh Castle

This photograph was taken when the artist, Gordon Lochhead, was invited on board the Royal Navy destroyer HMS Edinburgh, in dock at Edinburgh at the time,  having just completed the model of Edinburgh Castle in silver. (This piece was my first large-scale silver casting, and is used as a centrepiece on the Captain's table when he is entertaining guests on board the ship.)
