Fifty brightly-painted dolphin sculptures have been installed at locations around Aberdeen as part of a summer arts project.

The life-sized fibre glass models will be in Aberdeen's parks, beach and city centre for 10 weeks before being auctioned for charity.

Each is painted with a different theme, from Aberdeen football colours to wartime fighter planes.

Artists have also based work on the oil industry and Northern Lights.

The Wild Dolphins project has been organised by Wild in Art with the Archie foundation at the Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital and Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC).

It will be on show until the end of August.
