Armagh Miniature Street Sculpture
As you walk around the streets of Armagh City, you may have the eerie feeling that you are being watched. And you’re not wrong... Twenty-two tiny sets of still, glinting eyes will be silently following your every move. From nooks and crannies, behind windows and boot scrapers, fantastical, humorous and grotesque creatures are living their lives, often as a parody of our own strange human ways. And they are there for you to discover and delight in. These small and intricate bronze sculptures of gargoyles, chimeras and angels have been created in response to both the City’s existing sacral architecture and the jetsam of everyday life. Holger's work brings these creatures into our time and down to our level, giving each one a distinct character of its own and a place in the City’s modern street-life.
