The Kelpies statues in Falkirk, Scotland

The world’s largest equine sculptures, The Kelpies were built in 2013 in Falkirk, Scotland, as a tribute to the country’s horse-powered industrial heritage. Designed by sculptor Andy Scott, each steel statue is 100 feet tall and weighs more than 330 tons. They’re named for the kelpie spirits of Scottish folklore—shape-shifting water creatures said to favor the shape of a horse, but also thought to take human form.
