darkriver BS: Brendan Behan statue (10) RE: BS: Brendan Behan statue 18 Jan 05


ossonflags,

Can't find a full pic of it either, but there's a partial pic of it here, and a description of it in the Irish Examiner for 12/09/2003:


The piece which depicts Behan sitting on a park bench also features a singing blackbird with its plumage made up of some of the author's favourite tunes including An Ciul Fionn.

Sculptor John Coll said he took his inspiration for the piece from Behan's creative side rather than his destructive one "before fame, fortune and drink got the better of him".

The sculpture was designed so that the figure would appear eye- to-eye with anyone sitting on the bench as the writer loved interacting with the ordinary people of Dublin, said Mr Coll.
