Artist: Unknown

Location: Lauderdale House

This statue is on the parapet of the imposing Lauderdale House at the north end of the High Street. A sphinx has the haunches of a lion, the wings of a large bird and a human face which in Greek tradition is a woman.

Lauderdale House is formally a Barracks and is often mistaken to be Dunbar castle by visitors.
