In Scottish folklore a kelpie is a water spirit who can appear in the shape of a horse. The mythical creatures are said to live in Scottish lochs and rivers.
These Kelpies can be found at the Helix Park, between Falkirk and Grangemouth in Scotland. The 30m high horses heads which are made of steel, are one of the the UK’s tallest pieces of public art.
These giant structures are the result of an eight year project by Glaswegian sculptor Andy Scott. Each horse’s head consists of 300 tonnes of steel and each head took 75 days to complete.
Sculptor Scott says the inspiration for his kelpies comes from the heavy horses that once powered Scotland’s canals.
The £5million project which officially opened in April 2014, is fast becoming one of Scotland’s most photographed sites.
