A new piece of public art has been launched in Liverpool woodland, in the form of a transparent glass house.
The sculpture has an inner light which glows at night time
The sculpture, called Outhouse, is nestled in a wooded area between two blocks of flats in Woolton, Merseyside.
It was designed by artists Claire Oboussie and Vong Phaophanit, who has been nominated for the Turner Prize.
The artwork, which has lights inside that glow at night time, has been erected to give people living nearby a "new cultural focus".
Outhouse was commissioned by regeneration agency the Liverpool Housing Action Trust (LHAT), in partnership with the Guinness Trust.
LHAT say the artwork helps give people in Woolton a sense of "the emerging social and cultural renaissance of the city".
Paula Ridley OBE, chair of LHAT, said: "We are delighted at the inauguration of this first permanent art commission.
"We hope it will make a significant contribution to Capital of Culture 2008."
