 With Andy Scott joining us on November 9th, how can we not look back to Tartan Week 2014 and the 20 ft macquette Kelpies on display that spring at Bryant Park.

Read more of the 2014 Kelpies stay in New York HERE.

ASF is proud to have helped to bring the Kelpies to New York – we were so sorry to see them leave.

The full size 100 ft Kelpies, unveiled in 2015, are the largest equine sculptures in the world; situated in the Helix Park, Falkirk, beside the Forth of Clyde & River Carron extension.  Boats traverse “through” the Kelpies; and when lit at night they become magnificent beacons.
