  • This sculpture is located just outside of the Irish Life Centre building on the forecourt. The sculpture depicts a stylised male nude charioteer driving a chariot pulled by two galloping horses. The sculpture is surrounded by geysers and set in rectangular fountain. The sculpture is made of bronze and had a rough textured. There's not any clearly visible reins, but the charioteer it's clearly driving the horses which are in mid-gallop and animated. The sense of motion is accentuated by the moving water directly in front of the horses. The sculpture is slightly to the east end of the city centre and is definitely worth a small detour.
  • After passing this on my bus tour we went back to see it up close and it was a little disappointing. The fountain surrounding it gives it a nice ambiance especially when windy but the statute is not as nice as some others in the area. Still with a pass by if you are near by.
