Scroll down for short video of the move.
On Sunday 25th April 2010 the Lion of Scotland sculpture left Holyrood Park after four years and made the mile long journey to its new city centre venue at St Andrew Square Garden where it will be exhibited for the next two years.
Despite the pouring rain a crowd cheered as the sculpture was lifted by a huge crane over the canopy of the trees into the Garden. It was not long till the sun came out and the public flocked to engage with it. Already the Lion seems to be at home!
The sculptor wishes to thank Essential Edinburgh for hosting this exhibition, also First State Investments and private sponsors who have helped to finance the move, including support from Harvey Nichols and the City of Edinburgh Council SFC Neighbourhood Roads Team and an excellent job done by Ainscough Cranehire Ltd.
