A quiet path

One of the many pathways I found while dandering around in the Botanic Gardens in Dublin. My curiosity got the better of me and I had to discover what that ‘white thing’ was down there at the end…

A sculpture with no indication of who the sculptor was or the story of the piece. It does represent growth, there are etched saplings on the front and back. (click to enlarge)

The front

The back

These are not really sculptures..

No. They are the next door neighbours spied through the perimeter railing that borders the Botanic Gardens with Glasnevin cemetery.

It reminds me of the old joke:

Q. Do you know where the dead centre of Dublin is?

A. Glasnevin Cemetery!
