Meet Lopez the Lion. He’s been unveiled by the Edinburgh and Lothian Greenspace Trust as part of a revamp of the five-ways path junction on the North Edinburgh Cycle Path Network.
It is hoped the newly placed sculpture, by local artist Joyce Campbell, of the nearby Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop will become a local landmark as people cycle along the network.
The ‘fiveways feline,’ has been incorporated into 35m of low drystone wall that now encircles the junction.
The ELGT say a further phase of work will see fruit bushes and bulbs planted at the site, along with some cyclehoops to provide secure bike parking for people who might want to stop to forage and check out Lopez.
More photos of the work are available on the Innertube Map website.
