An iconic Aberdeen sculpture has lit up red to commemorate the centenary of the First World War Armistice.
Poised in Marischal Square – a statue depicting a large leopard – has turned crimson as part of Poppyscotland’s Light it up Red campaign.
Stephen Turner, regional director, Scotland, at Muse Developments, said: “Poised’s location and popularity in Aberdeen presented an opportunity for the message of thanks and remembrance to reach a wide audience.”
Poised designer and sculptor Andy Scott, who was also behind the award-winning Kelpies in Falkirk, welcomed the decision to light the sculpture up.
He said: “I am pleased to see my leopard sculpture Poised temporarily illuminated in red for Poppyscotland.

“It is a modest gesture which I hope reminds people of the sacrifice and dedication of others.
“Lighting of sculptures can often be a delicate balance to ensure the aesthetics of the art, but in the example of Poised I can see it is very dramatic and enhances the ambience of the Marischal Square development.”
