Here is the final offering of the decals from the zoology building... and I couldn't leave without giving you the representative of my adopted country, the kangaroo! 


There are a few more decals on the building but obscured somewhat by foliage, so gave them a miss. They are wolf, bison and red deer.

For the next few weeks, some new images - but of other images rather than live animals. The decals are all from the walls of the Ashworth Laboratories building at the Edinburgh University campus, which was opened in 1929. The decals (or plaques) were a commission from the sculptor, Phyllis Bone. The animals were first modelled in clay and the models then cast in artificial stone to make the seventeen plaques which decorate the exterior of the building.
