Giant Kelpies

Thanks to Colossal (in Chicago), I have just found out these giant kelpies have just moved in down the road!


 The Kelpies name reflected the mythological transforming beasts possessing the strength and endurance of 10 horses; a 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.

  2. Supposedly, you will be able to go inside them but they will not be finished until April 2014...but we may take a drive so we can see them from a distance.
