The Kelpies are two towering horse-head sculptures, standing next to the Forth and Clyde Canal, in Helix park, in Falkrik, in Scotland. The sculptures form a gateway at the eastern entrance to the Forth and Clyde canal, and the new canal extension built as part of The Helix land transformation project. The 300-ton, 30-meter sculptures were created by Glasgow artist Andy Scott,inspired by the shape shifting mythological creature by the same name that haunts the rivers and streams of Scotland and is known to posses the strength and endurance of 10 horses - quality that is analogous with the transformational change and endurance of Scotland's inland waterways. The Kelpies represent the lineage of the heavy horse of Scottish industry and economy, pulling the wagons, ploughs, barges and coalships that shaped the geographical layout of the Falkirk area.
