Another Banksy-esque art mystery has struck a chord with locals after popping up at an Arbroath beauty spot.
A series of musical notes, attached to a metal structure, have appeared at Arbroath cliffs near Seaton Den — without any clue as to the identity of the artist.
Locals have been playing “name that tune” since the notes popped up. The popular theory is that they represent the melody for Lord of the Dance.
Arbroath resident George Park said the artist was clearly a man or woman of many talents.
“I can only guess that we must look for a very competent blacksmith who wants to make a contribution to the already stunning landscape,” he said.
“I am really impressed.”
It’s the second time in as many weeks that unusual art work has appeared without warning in the town.
Just last month the appearance of “Keptie Kev” in the town’s Keptie Pond captured the imagination of visitors from far and wide.
The silver humanoid figure, which was positioned knee-deep in the water in front of an old jetty, was compared to an alien when it first appeared.
It was initially nicknamed Mirror Man, after a similar piece from Loch Earn, but Keptie Kev seemed to stick.
The sculpture became a social media sensation with crowds flocking to see the statue in person and a local business even produced T-shirts with the logo I Love Keptie Kev.
However, visitors to the pond were disappointed to find a sign reading “LOL” (laugh out loud) had been put in its place not long after it had arrived.
It is still not known if the artist, or artists, behind the original piece, were responsible for the swap.
Arbroath East and Lunan Conservative councillor Derek Wann said the town was full of surprises.
“I went out to see the musical notes at the cliffs the other day when it appeared on Facebook,” he said.
“It’s fantastic artistry. I wonder if it’s the same people who did Keptie Kev?
“It’s another wonderful mystery and attraction in Arbroath. Long may they continue.
“I have heard the music could be Lord of the Dance and I hope that the community get into the spirit.”
Lord of the Dance has been described as one the most celebrated religious songs of the 20th century.
It spread far beyond the Christian community when it captured the spirit of the 1960s protest movement in the United States.
