Oscar Wilde Monument

Danny Osborne, 1997

Located in Merrion Square, Dublin 2

The mixed-media statue of Wilde reclining on a large stone is multi-coloured. His clothing is largely made of different stones, including nephrite jade for his jacket; pink thulite for his cuffs and collar; Blue Pearl granite for his trousers. Two smaller bronze forms, on pedestals incised with Wilde quotations, face him across the path.
