British Ambassador Peter Cater looks at  a bronze bust of Oscar-winning actor Sean Connery, a prominent Scottish nationalist, after unveiling it at the Scottish Club in Tallin, Estonia, Thursday, Jan. 27, 2011. The bust was created by Estonia's most famous sculptor Tiiu Kirsipuu, and is intended to mark the year Sir Sean turned 80. The club itself was first founded in 1993 as a whisky society, but became associated with prominent politicians and top business figures. Based in the heart of Tallinn's Unesco heritage site, its staff serve guests dressed in kilts, while the carpet is tartan(AP Photo/Timur Nisametdinov, NIPA)
