A giant puppet of a Cornish miner has taken its first steps on a 130-mile journey.
The 10-metre (32.8ft) Man Engine will travel across the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site to mark the 10th year of its Unesco heritage status.
The puppet is the same height as a double decker bus when in "crawling" mode but more than twice that height when standing.
It was launched in Tavistock, Devon and will reach west Cornwall on 6 August.
