Saint Mungo.

For Cat.
George Frampton RA created this prestigious bronze group at the north entrance, depicting Saint Mungo as Patron Saint of the Arts. St Mungo is the city of Glasgow's patron saint and he is depicted with a crozier in his hand.

On either side of St Mungo are female figures: On the left, Art is featured with a book, and on the right, Music with an organ. Above these is a relief of The British colonies heralding the arms of Glasgow.

I have to admit I love these types of Victorian statues.
