Crane tribute to questioning mind of Wyllie

A GIANT yellow question mark has been hung from Glasgow's Finnieston Crane in tribute to artist George Wyllie.

The sculpture, made by Ferguson's Shibuilders and designed by Greenock-based artist Alec Galloway, is part of an exhibition celebrating the life of Wyllie, who died in May this year at the age of 90.

Glasgow-born Wyllie is best known for works such as Straw Locomotive, which also hung from Finnieston Crane, and Paper Boat, which made its way from Glasgow to Liverpool, London, Antwerp and New York.

Alec Galloway described the tribute sculpture as "vivid, bold and optimistic. Just like George."
