Construction work has been completed on Andy Scott's Kelpies, the world's largest pair of equine sculptures and one of the UK’s tallest pieces of public art. The 30 metre tall Kelpies have cost £5million to complete and play a central role in the £43 million, 350-hectare Helix land transformational project between Falkirk and Grangemouth.

The two Kelpie heads are positioned at a specially constructed canal lock and basin part of the Helix project, each weighing 300 tonnes and standing 100 feet tall. The structure was designed by sculptor Andy Scott as a monument to horse powered heritage across Central Scotland. (Getty Images)
