Belfast’s reputation for producing stuff that’s larger than life continues with a monumental artwork that comes a century after the sinking of the Titanic.
“Wish” is a portrait of a local 6-year-old girl that has been carved into an 11-acre field close to where the Harland and Wolff shipyard, birthplace of the massive doomed ship, once stood.
Part of the ongoing Belfast Festival, “Wish” was inspired by a local girl whom the artist met and photographed.
