Almost everyone in Adelaide knows of the Big Scotsman, located at the gateway to the city on the corner of Nottage Terrace and Main North Road. Erected in 1963, the Big Scotsman stands at 5 metres tall and was the very first of the 'Big Things' cult phenomenon built around Australia by Mr Paul Kelly.

The Scotsman was made with a solid steel frame, which was covered in wire netting and clad in hessian. It was then sprayed with a polyurethane foam and coated with a fibreglass mesh to prevent it from disintegrating and, finally, it was painted. The sculpture was built in three main pieces – legs, torso and head.

Big Scotty is still as strong as ever at nearly 70 years old, but just needs a bit of painting upkeep from time to time.
