Ireland - Co.Longford - Longford By Pass - The Violin.

This interesting artwork by Alex Pentek can be found on the N5 Bypass outside Longford town. The corten steel sculpture represents the upper portion of a giant 20 metre long violin as if it has been partly unearthed by the newly cut-away embankment. Using a bold, elegant, yet simple visual language this idea aims to communicate Longford’s rich musical heritage. This also alludes to the lost rural tradition of road-side Ceili dancing and gathering at crossroads across Ireland before the present era of motorways.

Lovely sculpture and nicely captured. Gorgeous against the blue sky and green grass.

This is unusual, and quite compelling!
