More than 700 different snowflakes have been spray-painted on the playgrounds and pathways of a school in Bristol.

The public artwork was conceived by Anna Barriball to mark the opening of the Oasis Academy John Williams.

A total of 720 individual snowflakes, created and cut-out by hand by both staff and students, were used as templates.

The work was commissioned by Bristol City Council and arts producers, Situations.

Ms Barriball said: "I wanted to keep the name of the person who made the flake together - so students and staff can find their own snowflake."

A map showing the location of each of the painted snowflakes has been produced, along with a complete compendium of the 720 unique designs.

"The painted snowflakes are fairly hardwearing but over time they will fade," said a spokesman for Situations.

Four volumes of all the snowflakes created will be held in trust by the Bristol Museums, Galleries and Archives, added the spokesman.
