Two north-east artists painted a white horse mural on a bridge in Strichen.
The mural, on the village’s old railway bridge, is a homage to the giant quartz White Horse on the nearby Mormond Hill.
Peterhead duo Melissa Arcaro and Scott Patrick took 40 hours to create the work, which was commissioned by the Strichen Community Council and partly funded by Aberdeenshire Council.
Miss Arcaro said: “We worked closely with the community council and the mural has been kept as close to the horse on the hill as possible so as not to overshadow it.
“It’s been a privilege to do it and become part of the history of the town.”
The 162ft long quartz horse on Mormond Hill – believed to be the only one of its kind in Scotland – is more than 300 years old.
The community council regularly visit the hill to maintain the White Horse, and decided it was fitting for another tribute to be created.
Secretary Stan Tennant said: “It was quite a long process and we’re very grateful to the Buchan area committee for the £1,000 grant to do it.
“It’s been in the minds of the community council for some years now. We originally talked about a metal horse but that simply wasn’t practical.”
Miss Arcaro, who operates an independent art gallery in Peterhead, and Mr Patrick took 10 days to create the mural using masonry paint.
She said: “It’s not been put on slapdash – it’s been intricate work with small brushes.
“Public feedback has been fantastic. We’ve also given local kids the chance to do a bit of the painting. It’s been a great experience.”
The whole design will now be waterproofed to protect it from water and dirt thrown up by passing vehicles.
