Creating the Kelpies

This observational arts doc follows the well-known Glasgow sculptor Andy Scott as he creates two giant horses' heads. For Andy - who created the famous Heavy Horse sculpture on the M8, and has created public art at home and internationally - it has been the biggest project of his career.

The Kelpies - the name for a mythical Celtic water horse - each stand up to 30 metres tall on the Forth & Clyde Canal and weigh over 300 tonnes.
