“Kelpies,” World’s Largest Pair of Horse Sculptures

Standing 100ft tall, two enormous horse head sculptures have been completed in Scotland.  Designed  by Andy Scott as a tribute to the Clydesdales that used to pull barges up and down canals, each horse head is made of 300 tons of steel.

From King5.com:

“I see The Kelpies as a personification of local and national equine history, of the lost industries of Scotland,” said Scott. “I also envisage them as a symbol of modern Scotland – proud and majestic, of the people and the land.  They are the culmination of cutting edge technology and hand crafted artisanship, created by our country’s leading experts through international partnerships.”
