Take a look at the murals brightening up the Meadows

A fox plays a harp as a rabbit rides a skateboard alongside a woman cycling on a penny farthing.

The new artwork on the billboards at the Meadows is certainly worth checking out.

These new pieces have appeared on the electricity substation between middle and north Meadow Walks.

So where did they come from?

Last year, Friends of the Meadows and Bruntsfield Links decided that a mural would improve the look of the building and began fundraising for the art.

Scottish Power contributed half of the costs towards the project, alongside a Getting It Sorted grant.

The funding package was completed by the South Central Neighbourhood Partnership who donated a Community Grant of £3808.

The project was a collaborative effort between Edinburgh artist Astrid Jaekel and poet Rachel Woolf who were given the brief to reflect the history of the area, coordinated by Heather Goodare, convenor of the Friends of the Meadows and Bruntsfield Links.

Each painting focuses on folk culture featuring the coronation of the May Queen and the 'High Jinks' on Bruntsfield Links.

Councillor Jim Orr, convener of the South Central Neighbourhood Partnership, said: “The mural is a fantastic addition to the park and greatly enhances the area."

"The South Central Neighbourhood Partnership is delighted to help Friends of the Meadows and Bruntsfield Links bring art into the park, and the project is a good example of what Community Grant funding can achieve.”

You can take a look at progress photos of the mural via Astrid Jaekel's Facebook page.
