Monument to the lost souls

ANGUS Ferguson was spot on last week with his comments on the proposed new sculpture for the Black Middens.

I feel they are an impressive natural sculpture as they are, but if we must have something there, it must bold, original and in keeping with the local culture.

The rocks have been the graveyard for many vessels so perhaps something nautical should be considered. Not just a sculpture but also a monument to the lost souls.

How about a huge mast with a crows nest and a figure looking out to sea?
