The Kelpies

The Kelpies

The british media has been talking about The Kelpies a lot this week. Andy Scott is the man behind Scotland’s tallest sculptures which are also the largest equine sculptures in the world.

The 30m high, 300 tonne steel horse structures are visible for miles around and are bound to invite more people to visit Falkirk’s new £46m Helix Park project.

Visitors will have the chance to look at them up close when they open to the public in spring 2014. I can’t wait to see these myself! It’s the sort of approachable public art that allows even the most bitter art cynic to be in awe of it’s beauty, might and technical achievement.
