This bronze by Henry Bain Smith (1857-1893) was cast in July 1892 and unveiled two months later.

The daisy held by the national bard recalls his popular poem “To a Mountain Daisy”, written at the plough in April 1786. Burns personally identified with the daisy’s fate and despairingly reflected on his own circumstances at the time.
