You’ll Be Amazed By Scotland’s New Giant Horse Head Sculptures 1

In honor to the horses that are part of Scotland’s history the Scots have built two giant horse head sculptures in Helix. Measuring 100 feet tall these sculptures are located at the Forth and Clyde Canal, a 350 hectare parkland project built to connect 16 communities in the Falkirk Council Area of Scotland.

These giant horse head sculptures are the work of sculptor Andy Scott and were completed back in 2013. They are now the largest public sculptures in Scotland and a great monument to the country’s horse powered heritage.

The particular horse the sculptures are based on is the Kelpie which is a supernatural 10 strong water horse from Celtic folklore. Built from structural steel with a stainless steel cladding, The Kelpies weigh 300 tonnes each.

Even though it only took a few months to construct these sculptures it took years fabricating the steel ready for the build.
