Wild Dolphin Trail

A Pod Like No Other

As part of our Angus's Grand Tour project aimed at showing off just how wonderful Aberdeen, Scotland is, Little Angus is following the Wild Dolphins trail.  Below are the first 5 #dolphie's (dolphin Selfies) Little Angus is hoping to get all 50.

Wild Dolphins is an art project which has seen 50 life sized sculptures of bottle nosed dolphins appear all over the city.  Organised by Wild in Art and supporting the ARCHIE Foundation and Whale and Dolphin Conservation, these brightly coloured and imaginatively decorated dolphins can be seen until August 29th, 2014.

#dolphie no1 Don the Dolphin - Don is currently living on the upper mall of Union Square, he is painted in an Aberdeen Football Club strip (making him Little Angus's favourite) and is signed by the team which won the Scottish League Cup

#dolphie No2 Adeona - Looking out over the North Sea from the Mouth of the River Don, Adeona is delicately painted with lifelike birds and fish.

#dolphie No 3 Montgomery - situated in leafy Seaton Park, Montgomery is a riot of colour.  A beautiful painted cityscape and fused glass shapes adorn this stunning dolphin.

#dolphie No 4 The Great Wave at Aberdeen - One of the dolphins on the Beach promenade, The great Wave at Aberdeen conjures up the essence of the sea with its beautiful images rendered in calming shades of blue.

#dolphie No 5 Funky D - This dolphin nestled in the heart of Johnston Gardens really is a leap into the world of fantasy from its dragon snout to the magical landscapes and figures of balloon flyers on it's base this is a must see piece of work.

More dolphies will follow soon, the project can be followed on Twitter using the hashtags  #dolphie and #WildDolphins.
