The massive steel sculpture of two iconic Clydesdale horses is a central element of The Helix, a multi-use park being built just east of the Scottish town of Falkirk.
The piece, which took 7 years to complete, stands over 100 feet (30.5 meters) tall and is built from more than 600 tons of steel.

Limestone head of an Egyptian woman
Her elaborate wig suggests that she is elite and/or very well off. She has the typical facial characteristics of the 18th dynasty; almond eye, full lips in a gentle smile and a child-like round face.

Cloud Leopard Papercut Art — Official Video — Nahoko Kojima
Published on May 21, 2012
Professional papercut artist, Nahoko Kojima of Solo Kojima, selected by the Crafts Council as one of only ten international artists showing in the Project Space at Collect 2012 at the Saatchi gallery (11-14 May 2012). The astoundingly intricate Cloud Leopard Papercut sculpture unveiled at the event was made from one sheet of paper and cut by hand — a process which took 5 months.
Not only does this piece encourage recognition of a Japanese artform in the UK but it also also gives many people a chance to see a new form of paper sculpture for the first time. The implications this has to Papercut Art in Europe are significant as it challenges established views and presents a very new concept of treating it as sculpture. A truly spectacular example of Contemporary Japanese Paper-cut Art, which represents a new sculptural direction for Nahoko Kojima.
The phantasmagorical and surreal animal sculptures by Canadian artist Ellen Jewett. Between dream and nightmare, some strange creations born of a symbiosis between organic and mechanical elements, a meeting between fantasy, gothic and steampunk. Some very detailed sculptures in clay on a metal frame.
