I’ve a mixed bag of goodies for this week’s Thursday Doors and they’re all in various locations around the city of Dublin. Of course, I had to start with a red door, followed by a fabulous old bridge.
This next bridge was worth including, too.
I would be doing a great injustice not to include one of the many monuments and fountains to be found dotted around the capitol.
The Chariot of Life is a copper-bronze sculpture which is said to depict ‘reason controlling the emotions’. It is the work of Oisín Kelly (1915-1981) and was unveiled a year after his death.
There are quite a lot of unusual pieces of art on the streets of Dublin and some even have doorways included.
There is also a pleasant mix of old and new buildings. Dublin is definitely not a city of skyscrapers.
But most of all Dublin is known for it’s doors, so I think I should leave you now with a small sample to finish off this week’s Thursday Doors post.
As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Norm has a great selection of Thursday Doors over on his blog this week, too.
