This monument will form one half of the 'kelpie' by sculptor Andy Scott. It towers almost 100 feet above the Forth & Clyde canal and will form a dramatic gateway at the eastern entrance. They will represent a homage to horse heritage across Central Scotland and will stand 100ft tall and weigh over 300 tonnes.
The two massive heads will be positioned either side of a specially constructed lock and basin, part of the redeveloped canal hub. Scott was also responsible for the Heavy Horse sculpture on the M8 in Glasgow.
