The Kelpies are one of the largest equine sculptures in the world, standing 30 metres (100 feet) tall. They will be the landmark feature of The Helix Environmental Regeneration Scheme on the Forth and Clyde Canal near Falkirk on Central Scotland. They are the brain-child of sculptor Andy Scott, and will be the largest public artworks in Scotland.
The image shows the internal structure of one of the sculptures, developed by Atkins Engineers, from Andy Scott’s original maquettes.
