A sculpture by artist David Mach has been erected in Kirkcaldy.
The artwork was commissioned by Morrisons and stands near the entrance to its shop on the Esplanade.
A large piece of carved driftwood, the sculpture is covered in tens of thousands of metal tacks depicting various images and designed to shimmer in the light.
Councillor Neil Crooks said he hoped the installation by the Methil-born artist behind the Big Heids on the M8 would attract fans to the area to see the piece.
The public artwork was one of two commissioned by Morrisons as part of a drive to improve the western entrance to the town.
Mr Crooks, chairman of Fife Council’s Kirkcaldy area committee, said: “It is good to finally see the David Mach sculpture erected on site and it is something which I am sure will attract a lot of comment.
“It was commissioned through local people and my understanding is it consists of beach driftwood and a multitude of metal pins which will reflect in sunlight changing the impression of the piece constantly from different angles.
“It is significant to have a piece of artwork by such a prestigious Scottish sculptor as a welcome to our waterfront area and I look forward to people’s views and hope it attracts Mach’s international following to Kirkcaldy to see his work.”
Before they are officially unveiled, finishing touches have to be made to both Mach’s artwork and an art wall on the shop’s boundary wall created by Innerleithen-based Lara Greene with inspiration from the area’s historic weaving industry.
A spokesman for Morrisons said: “The artists have now finished most of the work for the sculpture and art wall at the Kirkcaldy store, but there are a few final elements which need to be completed.”
A commitment to provide public art was made when planning consent was granted for the supermarket at Invertiel two years ago.
