The horse heads are scale models of two 100-foot high heads located in Falkirk, Scotland. Sculpted by that nation's leading public artist, Andy Scott, The Kelpies celebrate the heavy horses instrumental to Scotland's development. The scale models, referred to as The Maquettes, will be the backdrop to music and presentations during Tartan Week, celebrated April 4th - 8th this year.
|The heads are sculpted of bits of steel plate, giving them lightness and movement as seen in this rendering.|
