I remember seeing this statue in Newcastle. I like the mountains in this image. Nice work Bill.

@Shaun: The statue is beside the Slieve Donard Hotel in Newcastle. We spent a relaxing break there a couple of weeks ago.

Your point of view is perfect! These statues are so realistic and convey such joy and hope. Fabulous image

@Ruthiebear: Thanks, Ruthie. They were set perfectly to show the "mountains sweep down to the sea!"

They look like they could just fly away. This is just spectacular! It conveys such a feeling of freedom. I love the outstretched arms and the hands. The sculptor is just so talented.

@Elaine Hancock: It certainly is an effective piece of art. I don't know who the sculptor is.
