Mary’s mys­tery

Scottish Field - - NEWS -

Scot­land’s Na­tional Mu­sic School re­ceived the gift of a pa­per sculp­ture from Ed­in­burgh’s Anony­mous Sculp­tor whose works have in­trigued the lit­er­ary and arts world since the first one ap­peared in 2011. Her works nor­mally cen­tre around the theme of en­light­en­ment. The sculp­tor, whose iden­tity has re­mained a se­cret ex­cept that she is fe­male, sent her lat­est work of art to St Mary’s Mu­sic School for the first day of the new school year. In her ac­com­pa­ny­ing note ad­dressed to ‘the cur­rent and fu­ture pupils of St Mary’s Mu­sic School’, the mys­tery artist re­vealed that the sculp­ture is her way of show­ing sup­port for the cause for mak­ing the Old Royal High school the new home for St Mary’s Mu­sic School. Like all her other work, the lat­est sculp­ture is made from old books and this one de­picts a mu­si­cian on stage who is play­ing a cello sur­rounded by fly­ing mu­si­cal notes.
