craig parshall | dublin, ireland | november 1999 | street sculpture

several sculptures are found in the streets of dublin, most of them with an official name, and another name which the locals refer to them by. this is
anna livia, the spirit of the river liffey, also known as "the floozy in the jacuzzi".


this is
molly malone. as my favorite bus tour guide referred to her, "a fish merchant by day, and of quite a different occupation by night. she died of a social disease, god bless her." it is by this reputation that she is known as "the tart with the cart", amongst other things.


the shoppers
near the ha' penny bridge, or "the hags with the bags".


oscar wilde
sitting on a rock. didn't catch it if he had a nickname,
although they seemed to treat the local authors
and artists of recognition with a little higher regard.
