The Kelpies

The Helix is a new parkland project near the Clyde and Forth Canal near Falkirk, Scotland.  A central element of the park is the 30 metre high sculpture called 'The Kelpies'.  Kelpies are mythical horses who had the strength of ten horses and they represent the lineage of heavy horses used in the area to pull wagons, plows and barges in the Falkirk area.  Public art can be such a wonderful thing when executed with this kind of skill.
