TITANICA BY ROWAN GILLESPIE

I visit Belfast at least once a year. This year I decided to visit a week before the Brexit referendum and I have returned home convinced that the decision next week will be to leave the European Union. This is not the result that I wish for.

In front of the Titanic Belfast building is Titanica, a sculpture by Rowan Gillespie depicting a diving female figure. Made of bronze, it is mounted on a brass base, evoking the design of figureheads on ships' prows, and is meant to represent hope and positivity. The figure was dedicated by representatives of the Anglican, Catholic, Methodist and Presbyterian churches on 27 March 2012, a few days before the opening of Titanic Belfast.

SORRY FOR THE DELAY
