Life imitates art in drive to raise £60k

A GROUP of volunteers struck some unusual poses as they imitated characters in a colourful painting by well-known artist Elena Kourenkova to promote a charity art show.

The volunteers at the annual Edinburgh Macmillan Art show, which closes to the public tomorrow, re-created the work, entitled Window Shopping, in the flesh as they were setting up the show at the Dovecot Studio.
