Big Country – The Artist
Big Country are a Scottish rock band formed in Dunfermline, Fife, in 1981. The height of the band’s popularity was in the early to mid 1980s, although they still retain a cult following. The band’s music incorporated Scottish folk and martial music styles, and the band engineered their guitar-driven sound to evoke the sound of bagpipes, fiddles and other traditional folk instruments. Big Country originally comprised of Stuart Adamson (formerly of Skids, vocals/guitar/keyboards), Bruce Watson (guitar/mandolin/sitar/vocals), Tony Butler (bass guitar/vocals) and Mark Brzezicki (drums/percussion/vocals).

It was written by Stuart Adamson and produced by Peter Wolf. “King of Emotion” reached No. 16 in the UK Charts.

The Swallow Bird – The Shape
Modelled into two swallow birds in flight. Swallows are small birds, with pointed narrow wings, short bills, and small weak feet; some species have forked tails. Plumage may be plain or marked with metallic blue or green; the sexes look alike in most species. Swallows are very agile and spend much time in the air, capturing insects. For nesting, swallows may use a hole or cranny in a tree, burrow into a sandbank, or plaster mud onto a wall or ledge to house three to seven white, sometimes speckled, eggs. Swallows occur worldwide except in the coldest regions and remotest islands.
