"To The People Of The Sea" takes its inspiration from both sails and the sea alike. The sculpture, by Holger Lonze, is a metaphorical vessel for sea-related imagery that offers many angles of interpretation. it suggests a sea creature emerging out of the depth of Irish mythology and awakes associations with prehistoric megaliths, brought to this coast by early seafarers. its vertical surface of an angry ocean is a reminder of legendary voyages that passed thtrough these historic waters, while the rich texture and depp blue coloyur of its surface is a glimpse of the depth of the ocean.
