AN intricate swimming pool created by Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos has been unveiled in Edinburgh.

Swimmers will be able to visit the pool in August after the exhibition is officially opened on Saturday at the Jupiter Artland Foundation.

The pool, known as Gateway, was made from more than 11,500 hand-painted tiles using traditional methods at a 100-year-old factory in Vasconcelos’ native Portugal.

The permanent exhibition is part of the Edinburgh Art Festival, running from July 27 right until September 29. Soon to be open to the public, the work joins 34 other permanent collections set within in the grounds of Bonnington House, a 17th-century Jacobean Manor House.

Other sculptures include works by artists Antony Gormley, Charles Jencks, Anish Kapoor and more.
