The Kelpies is an iconic equestrian sculpture designed by the famed artist Andy Scott. Located on the Forth & Clyde Canal in Falkirk. The two steel horses heads are the largest equine sculptures in the world, inspired by the cultural heritage of the Clydesdale horses, draught horses, which worked hard to help people along the canals and on the land.
