The Guardian of the bridges sculpture was unveiled today at South Queensferry. Very happy to see it installed after a 3 year journey! A mosaic sculpture designed and created in collaboration with local primary school children. Their designs informed the shape and their tesselated creations form the scales of this shiny dragon.

Over 700 participants were involved in its creation, along with the abundant help and support of project staff, structural engineers, metal fabricators, landscapers and installation engineers.Thank you to everyone that was involved and who offered support in getting this creation realised.
