A bid to host an iconic ceramic poppies exhibition in Aberdeen to commemorate World War 1 could be withdrawn.
The city council made a bid in January to host the dramatic display next year.
The Weeping Windows sculptures are from the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red installation by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper.
The installation surrounded the Tower of London in 2014.
Smaller compositions have been presented at various locations, including St Magnus Cathedral in Orkney and the Black Watch Museum in Perth.
The council’s events team had considered two potential sites for the installation – Marischal College quadrangle and the Remembrance Hall within the Art Gallery.
A report to councillors recommended withdrawing the bid as there is “no identified budget” to support the installation.
The local authority estimates the exhibition would cost £129,675.14.
