A new sculpture of a steel leopard, designed by the man behind the award-winning Kelpies, was opening to the public today.
Andy Scott’s design, which is called Poised, is located in the Marischal Square development and was open to the public from noon until 6pm today.
From tomorrow people will be able to see it each day from 8am to 6pm.
The work will form part of the sections at the £107 million Marischal Square development that are open to the public.
The artist and developers believe the leopard sculpture will bring significant tourism to the city.
Mr Scott said: “I’ve worked on this sculpture for over a year in the studio and it’s been very demanding.
“There are literally thousands of steel fragments, all individually welded to help create the form of the artwork.
“It now stands five metres tall, weighs just over two tonnes, and will sit proudly atop a 10-metre high steel column. I hope it brings a real presence and sense of drama to the atrium space of Marischal Square.”
