“Shiny”

Thanksgiving Square
Reviewed 15 May 2014

I quite like this statue, she's very tall and shiny and silver, and you can see her from all around the river. I wonder is she a celebrating hoola hoop dancer?

Reviewed 26 January 2014

This small public space is on the corner of Queen's Bridge and Oxford Street in Belfast. You probably wouldn't notice it, only for the "Beacon of Hope" sculpture in it. The locals call it "the thing with the ring". The square is based on a similar one in Dallas, Texas. The statue cost 300,000 pounds, and it's 20 meters high, and it's the 2nd largest sculpture in Belfast, with "Rise" being the biggest. It has become a much loved icon for Belfast, and was voted most popular art work in Ulster.
