This is a sculpture of Gulliver that is in Dublin. It was commissioned as part of the celebration for being chosen book for 2008 in Dublin: One City, One Book project designed to encourage everyone in the city to read the same book during the month of April each year. To celebrate Gulliver’s visit to Dublin, 15 events and exhibitions were held throughout the capital in April for both adults and children. Captain Lemuel Gulliver himself came to Dublin’s Docklands from April 1st - 15th with two giant sand sculptures being created in his honour. One is in the chq building and the other outside the building adjacent to George’s Dock.
They decided because of limited locations in the docklands to try something a little different and build a sculpture inside an archway. The location gave an opportunity to be very site specific. Daniel carved Gulliver being told of the terms of his release by the lilliputians. ulliver was around 13ft tall while sitting. In his hand is a lilliputian reading to him from a scroll about the terms of his release. Gulliver has a slight smile while hearing this as with one movement he could squash his captor.
