The fourth member of the 'Sentinels'. Highly polished mirrored profiles which constantly alter in appearance as the light and weather changes throughout the day. This figure represents a female mill worker and is sited near the old Paton's Woollen Mill at Kilncraigs. The mirrored surfaces are intentionally slightly distorted, to create a more interesting reflection and to invite the viewer to look into this altered image of their surroundings in a new way. There are three other sentinels on the High Street, Alloa.
