Prachtig deze monumenten Bill, Mooie koppen.ReplyDelete
That statue must have been quite an undertaking and I must say that your last picture shows a surprised looking face.Of course, the person designed thought it would never work.ReplyDelete
Wouldn't want to meet any of them in a dark alley!ReplyDelete
...the eyes in the last image are haunting.ReplyDelete
They look a bit frightening, the expressiom of the last photo is a bit scary.ReplyDelete
Those eyes do pop.ReplyDelete
Good to see that and the history.

It's hard to keep languages from smaller groups. Some of our aboriginal languages are gone and some are almost gone.ReplyDelete
Interesting carving. Good that it commemorates history, but the last photo shows a surprised expression. Also is this carving in limestone or granite? You mention both.ReplyDelete
I got the info from the donegal public arts site and they did mention both so I don't really know and can't find any more info on it.Delete
