These new statues have just been completed near us. Watched them being built over the last year on the way to work. It isn't my photo as haven't been able to get near them but plan to get there soon.

And there is a time lapse on the construction.

The sculptures are at Falkirk (Scotland) (in between Glasgow and Edinburgh) and open on the 21/4 or 4/21 (for US folk). Just realised you can actually see them from our garden - they are about 3 miles (4.5km) away! Picture was taken very quickly with video cam. There are laser shows tonight so I'll see if I can get something from the garden - I'm not paying an entry fee for that (and I'm not Scottish).

The laser shows met expectations. From our house it looked like a few folk with laser pointers - I would have expected, even from a distance, something a little bit more spectacular. Still stunning when I drive past them.
