The Falkirk Kelpies

Big public art is cool when it’s good, and Scotland’s newest example is pretty good, if you ask me.  Very good, in fact.

The Kelpies at Falkirk – close enough to Edinburgh for a quick visit at the weekend – are huge, spectacular and very, very cleverly conceived.  They’re memorials and icons, reflecting Scotland’s industrial heritage and folkloric traditions.  Above all, though, I think they’re kind of beautiful.  And eloquent.  And enormous.

Cue photo-fest.
