“The Kelpies” are a pair of 99-foot-tall horse head sculptures located on either side of a canal in Falkirk, Scotland. Created by Scottish artist Andy Scott, each sculpture weighs 300 tons and is clad in laser-cut stainless steel plates. The sculptures take their name from a mythological beast that was said to have the strength and endurance of 10 horses. “The Kelpies” were recently completed and will be open to the public in April 2014.
