A crucifixion at Brechin's 

traditional High Street cross. Would this have been the place - the Calvary? What would you have done? Would you, like the wee boy, offer Irn Bru or skulk away like the 'be-chained figure of office'  in the foreground? Would you care, give a second glance? Brechin, although it boasted of having eight churches, was a place where witch burning and hangings took place, streets are named Witchden Road and Gallow-hill.
