In August 2012 Ronald Rae’s Heavy Horse and Foal moved to the Crinan Canal in Argyll where it was on loan to Scottish Canals for three years. It was such a perfect setting for the sculpture – the Heavy Horse and Foal at Lock 14 – there to welcome all the boats that pass through the Canal. However the sculpture has now returned to the Falkirk Wheel to join the Ronald Rae Exhibition of ten sculptures. Open all year – free admission.
The Heavy Horse and Foal took the sculptor over a year to be carve using hand tools only. The granite comes from Aberdeeenshire and has been dated over 460 million years old. For sale.
