This bronze statue in the park near the NSW Art Gallery in Sydney commemorates Scotland`s most famous poet Robert Burns (1759 – 1796). Inaugurated in 1905 by the State Governor in honour of the origins of many Australians. The statue and its plinth was cast in statuary bronze by Mr. A. Burton, bronze founder, of Thames Ditton, Surrey. Burns is represented leaning upon a plough left standing in a furrow. He is wearing his Kilmarnock bonnet and rig, as seen in Naismith’s portrait of him.
