Stolen George Laing Sculpture from Kelvingrove Museum in Glasgow

Stolen George Laing Sculpture from Kelvingrove Museum in Glasgow

Scottish television has reported that a visitor to the museum last Sunday walked out with a sculpture by Scottish artist George Laing during visiting hours around 4:30 in the afternoon.  The work was created in 1979 and acquired by the museum in 1981.  The sculpture was worth an estimated £20,000, was roughly 13 kg, and measured 35.5cm x 20cm x 21.1cm so it could have fit into a medium sized bag.  Laing passed away in November 2011 at age 75.
