Summary[edit]

Description
English: Fisher Jessie statue, Peterhead Following information from www.bbaf-arts.org.uk

Naturalistic bronze cast statue of a fish-wife and little girl, the woman carrying a creel and a basket.

Related Information: made by Scott Associates Sculpture and Design and named by Peter James Buchan after his great great grandmother Jessie Buchan known as 'Fisher Jessie'. Fisher wives like Jessie would travel into the rural areas around the town hawking fish from their creels on their backs or exchanging it for agricultural produce, which they would carry in the basket. This trade continued up to the 1950s. Although not cutting edge artistically this piece is popular locally, evoking as it does a recently passed age of a distinctive fisher sub-culture.
