English Sculptor Thomas Wightman created an incredibly detailed Scotland art piece using a hard covered book. The artistic piece was created for 'Visit Scotland,' the Scottish tourist board. The stunning piece represents a memory of his when he was travelling on train over the Glenifinnan Viaduct bridge. Harry Potter fans might recognize the sculpture because, according to the artist's website, the bridge has been made famous in the Harry Potter films. The sculpture literally takes the concept of pop-up books to a whole other level.
The beautiful Visit Scotland art piece will be put on display for the launch of the 'ScotSpirit' campaign in Edinburgh. The event is a celebration of Scotland where experiences and stories are shared. Using an artistic piece such as this to promote tourism and events is an interesting and unique way to gain consumer attention, especially considering that the sculpture is also based on a globally popular British-made book series.
