A BESPOKE locally-crafted unicorn sculpture has been donated to Helix Park in Falkirk – home of the Kelpies – by artist David Powell as part of the Meet Your Maker project run by Historic Environment Scotland (HES) and Craft Scotland.

The unicorn, which has been named Spirit of Scotland, is made of metal armature and woven with white willow. It joins the world’s largest equine structure at the site.

Completed in 2019, Spirit of Scotland was featured at HES’s Magical Unicorn event at Stirling Castle last year.

Meet Your Maker is now in its sixth year and provides opportunities for members of the local community to co-design new work inspired by Stirling Castle and the Engine Shed with practising contemporary makers.

The unicorn is now on display at Helix Park and is free to access for all visitors.
