  • THE KELPIES Andy Scott

    Forth and Clyde Canal, Scotland

    The Kelpies, two horse heads  looking at the Forth and Clyde Canal in Scotland from 30 meters above, are a tribute to the horses, a very important element in the culture and industry of the region. The work takes its name from mythological creatures as strong as 100 horses combined, and each horse is composed of 300 tones of steel. Also used as a venue for various light art and projection performances, the Kelpies is the biggest artwork based in Scotland and the biggest horse sculpture in the world.
