The Dream celebrates the friendship of young people regardless of race or background. An
exact replica was gifted to Glenrothes’s twin town, Boblingen, in Germany.

And on that note, I would like to wish all my Followers and Friends, and everyone in the
wordpress community a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

    • Thanks Lorna 🙂 Glenrothes had two resident artists from roughly 1967 – 1995, which meant there are numerous scattered sculptures and bits of artwork dotted throughout the town. It’s enough artwork that I’ve created a category on the blog for it 🙂

  1. You know, as incredibly familiar as I am with this statue, I didn’t actually know it was called The Dream. I always referred to it as “the one with the kids playing ring-a-roses” often in a sentence explaining where I was parking so as to avoid the stupid time limited parking at the town centre. It is, however, one of the statues I really like in Glenrothes. It’s got a great sense of movement to it.

    • Like you Laura, we had always referred to it as the ‘ring-a-roses’, so I was surprised when I saw the plaque describing it! Malcolm Robertson did a superb job in capturing that sense of movement in the sculpture, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a sculpture quite so life like as this 🙂
      I was also really pleasantly surprised to know that they donated Boblingen a replica 🙂
