‘Mercy’

  The Mill of Kintail in the previous post also houses works of  famous sculptor R. Tait Mackenzie, a childhood friend of Naismith. They include the bronzed plastic Madonna-like ‘Mercy.’ The completed statue in bronze stands in the headquarters of the American Red Cross in Washington D.C. in honour of the 296 American nurses who died in the First World War. Also in the collection at the mill is Mackenzie’s Scottish- American War Memorial, known  as “The Call 1914″‘
