    The Kelpies

    September 22 in the United Kingdom

    Auf halben Weg zwischen Edinburgh und Stirling befindet sich der Helix Park. Eine Art Naherholungszentrum im Grünen für gestresste Großstädter. In diesem Park ist überdies auch etwas ganz interessantes - The Kelpies - zwei riesige Pferdeköpfe zu Ehren der Arbeiter-Pferde, die einst Lastkähne entlang des Kanals gezogen haben und damit der Region um Stirling etwas Wohlstand verschafften. Woher kommt der Name "Kelpies"? Er beschreibt unfreundliche Wassergeister, genau aus diesem Grund befindet sich Wasser um die beiden Skulpturen. Das Gewicht je Kopf beträgt 90 Tonnen und steht auf 1200 Tonnen Beton je Pferd.
    Das Bild mit den Haus, dass wie eine Ananas aussieht, ist ganz in der Nähe der Pferdeköpfe entstanden, es symbolisiert Wohlstand.

    The Kelpies

    September 17, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    Chosen by Scottish Canals at the inception of the project, The Kelpies name reflected the mythological transforming beasts possessing the strength and endurance of 100 horses; a quality that is analogous with the transformational change of our landscapes, endurance of our inland waterways and the strength of our communities. 

    Andy Scott's vision for The Kelpies follows the lineage of the heavy horse of industry and economy, pulling the wagons and ploughs, barges and coalships that shaped the structural layout of the area. Retaining The Kelpies as the title for these equine monuments, Andy sought to represent the transformational and sustainably enduring qualities The Helix stands for through the majesty of The Kelpies.Read more
