More About The Kelpies by Andy Scott
 
 
 
Overview
A stunning photographic and text record of the making of Europe's largest and most iconic public sculptures Weighing a whopping 300 tons each, the Kelpies are two 30-meter high steel horse sculptures by internationally renowned artist Andy Scott. They form a dramatic gateway to the entrance of the Forth and Clyde canal in central Scotland and promise to become one of the most globally recognizable pieces of sculpture in the UK. This coffee table book collects previously unpublished behind-the-scenes photos of the creative and manufacturing process, beautiful photography of these iconic public sculptures in all seasons, and short essays on the sculptor's work and the significance of the kelpies. A monument to horse powered heritage that helped build the nation during the industrial revolution, they are also inspired by the Scottish myth of supernatural sea horses.
