A SPECTACULAR day of performance helped launch the new £1 million Crawick Multiverse land art on Sunday.

The 55 acre cosmic landscape near Sanquhar has been transformed from a former open cast coal mine into a stunning visitor attraction.

It was created by the world renowned Charles Jencks and funded by the Duke of  Buccleuch, pictured below, and is inspired by the themes of space, astronomy and cosmology.

Mr Jencks said: “The Multiverse celebrates the surrounding Scottish countryside and its landmarks, looking outwards and back in time to present a difference view of the situation we are in.”
And the Duke of Buccleuch added: “Charles’ vision has transformed what was once a barren wasteland in need of love and attention into a visually stunning and intellectually stimulating landscape that will hopefully benefit the local area.”

The Multiverse will open to the public on July 10.
