The Kelpies are a pair of truly monumental-scale statues towering over the countryside near Falkirk in Scotland that have been visited by millions since their opening to the public in 2014.

Two gleaming horse heads, 100 ft (30 meters) tall are clad in stainless steel panels and sit astride a canal lock. The stainless steel panels are attached to structural steel frames and each statue weighs 300 tons. They were built in 2013 and designed by artist Andy Scott.

Pope Francis unveiled a monument in St. Peter's Square dedicated to the world's migrants and refugees.

The "Angels Unaware" boat by Canadian artist Timothy P. Schmalz depicts 140 migrants ranging from a Jewish man escaping Nazi Germany to a Syrian refugee fleeing the civil war.

The 20-foot sculpture by Canadian man Timothy P Schmatz, was unveiled during mass on the 105th World Day of Migrants and Refugees on Sunday 19 September 2019. Photo Associated Press.

Molly the magpie and Peggy the dog

Ms Wells rescued Molly about 12 months ago from a dog park near her home at Upper Coomera on the Gold Coast. She and partner Reece Mortensen were out walking Peggy when they saw a baby bird alone on the ground. After unsuccessfully trying to reunite the magpie with its parents, the pair brought the bird home and nursed it back to health.

Oh, I never saw those two before! I like them both but particularly the 2nd one. She writes poetry too, but clearly is a better painter. One would think all the art styles would be used at this point but she has come up with a winner hasn't she.

She's only 25 and her net worth is already 20 Million. So much for the phrase "Starving artists".
She's well-known on Instagram.
