The Details

Name: Layla

Location: Edinburgh Zoo

Created By: Bonaly Primary School

Sponsor: Merchiston Castle School

Design Inspiration

Layla was created by Cupcake Candy Crew from Bonaly Primary School.

Hundreds of young people from local primary and prep schools sent in designs for Merchiston Castle School’s #GiraffeAboutTown competition. Pamela McMahon designed and painted Merchiston’s 8-foot sculpture which is at Dynamic Earth and she chose her favourite entries.

Huge congratulations go to Bonaly Primary School’s Arya, Brigid, Imogen and Chloe who designed ‘Layla’. The team visited Merchiston Castle School’s Art Department to paint their beautiful giraffe.
