Three artists were given the opportunity to design a landmark which would be positioned on the A74 at Gretna, on the border between England and Scotland.
The artists were Chris Wilkinson of Wilkinson Eyre Architects, the American Ned Khan and Cecil Balmond whose design was the preference of the panel of judges for the Gretna Landmark Trust.
Mr Balmond's design, 180ft high and 131ft wide, will now be further developed before a planning application is submitted. It's hoped to have it in place before the Commonwealth Games in 2014.
What do you think about the sculpture greeting visitors entering and visiting Scotland? I've set up a wee poll in the right-hand column but if I've missed your opinion do feel free to comment below, as always.
