the (more than 39) scotsman steps

The Edinburgh Arts Festival (which has only been running since 2004 which is why I cannot remember having attended when I lived in the UK) kicked off on Thursday with a citywide celebration of the visual arts.
One of the focal points of the event is the renovation of the famous Scotsman Steps, cladding each one in a different marble gathered from around the world. The work was specially commissioned from Turner prize-winning Scots artist, Martin Creed.
The result is stunning.
