The statue shows Selkirk awaiting rescue in a sculpture by Thomas Stuart Burnett (1885). Alexander Selkirk (1676 – 13 December 1721) was a Scottish privateer and Royal Navy officer who spent more than four years as a castaway (1704–1709) after being marooned by his captain on an uninhabited island in the South Pacific Ocean.
