The sculpture will take the form of a "Double Rainbow" rising to 10.5m and swooping over the centre of the plaza, spanning a distance of 14m before touching down lightly on the ground at eight different points.
The question is - did the bank commission a spider or did the artist slip one past their art committee? 👀

The Irish Times and BreakingNews.ie are reporting that the Central Bank has been awarded planning permission for a “monumental” €300,000 outdoor sculpture for a public space outside its €140m HQ on the North Dublin Docklands.

Architects of the Central Bank, Henry J Lyons, told Dublin City Council that Ms Rothschild’s work is the “creation of a outdoor sculpture on a truly monumental scale, in a permanent location where a really strong and lasting engagement with the public is possible”.

The sculpture will take the form of a "Double Rainbow" rising to 10.5m and swooping over the centre of the plaza, spanning a distance of 14m before touching down lightly on the ground at eight different points.

What's puzzling from my perspective is, as a passer by of this site and its perimeter, where exactly is this LGBT Daddy Long Legs going to be located? There is no public plaza at the site - and certainly no one goes near that dystopian shithole unless they really have to.

And is the taxpayer going to be hit with the bill?

More meaningless 'public art' that the public is 'meant to see and engage with' 🙄

Hopefully the boyos will see a lot of valuable metal and relieve us of this 'art message' 🤓

The same lady has already erected a similar structure in Central Park.

It looks like it was coined from broken pelican crossing bollards thieved from a knuckers yard.

€300,000 of your hard earned smackers, folks.

They own the Central Bank, don't they?

The fact is that Ireland doesn't have a central bank. Central banks set interest rates and control the money supply. The ESB does that in Ireland's case. The so called "Irish Central Bank" is just a local branch office of the ECB.
