Mary of Guise (French: Marie de Guise) (22 November 1515 – 11 June 1560) was the Lorraine-born queen consort of Scotland as the second spouse of King James V. She was the mother of Mary, Queen of Scots, and served as regent of Scotland in her daughter's name from 1554 to 1560. She was a member of the powerful House of Guise, which played a prominent role in 16th century French politics. (Courtesy of Wikipedia.)

I was going to post an Edinburgh haar shot as it started grey and miserable but I spotted the large crane. (The sun has come through but weakly and temps are around 13C cf Glasgow 19C). It seems that Tony will be ritually hung once a year. He has spent the entire winter face down under the water but resurfaced thanks to a crew of 7 and the crane. (I guess 2 frogpersons placing and fixing the bolts, 2 from the engineering company responsible for fixing the structure, 2 with the crane and an interested party from the National Gallery). I was told that Tony weighs 700 Kg, a bit more than the average man.
