Today, January 25, marks the 260th anniversary of the birth of Scotland’s national bard, Robert Burns.
Over the course of this weekend, Burns Suppers will be held across the globe, to mark his contribution to literature and poetry, and commemorate his immortal memory.
Burns is not only one of the most celebrated writers on the planet, but he is someone whose image has been captured in a permanent form, with statues of him erected across the planet.
Here, we bring you a selection of some of them, from London to Australia, and Canada to New Zealand.
The Robert Burns Memorial located in downtown Barre, Vermont. It was erected by Barre’s Scottish immigrants in 1899 in observance of the 100th anniversary
