The Lark And The Bin Lid

04020-2017-02-07-beechmountmem-lark
Two metalworks by sculptor and painter Hugh Clawson (whose name can be seen on the bars in the upper image) featuring the lark as the ‘spirit of freedom’ (from The Lark And The Freedom Fighter). In the image above, the lark breaks through the bars of a prison cell, and in the image below, it flies in front of an “H” made of bricks, carrying a bin lid. (For a lark carrying a rifle, see Lark Of War and Armed Resistance.)
“In memory of all Irish martyrs who have died on hunger strike in the fight for Irish freedom. Their inspiration and courage will always be remembered by the republican movement and republican family (mid Falls).”
Previously by Clawson: painting inside Conway Mill.
Previously from the Beechmount memorial garden: The Dying Volunteer.
