PROJECT Jimmy ‘Jinky’ Johnstone
Jimmy ‘Jinky’ Johnstone
This bronze portrait statue sculpture of the legendary Celtic footballer Jimmy ‘Jinky‘ Johnstone was commissioned for a site in Viewpark, Glasgow where Johnstone grew up. The life-size bronze statue depicts ‘Jinky’ in one of his most memorable triumph poses after he scored a goal. John McKenna modelled the portrait statue on references supplied by the Johnstone family who came and approved the statue as it progressed. The bronze statue, cast at the A4A studio foundry was unveiled by the footballers family in Viewpark, Uddingston, Glasgow, August 2011.
