by Jason Mulligan from Dromore Co Down and Maidenhead, Kent. Hand-carved from a block of Portland limestone and represents the key reason this quarry existed, i.e. high-grade limestone. Note the sea shells captured within the sculpture. Before the blasted limestone could be processed, flint had to be removed by hand. The shape represents a nodule of flint.

Hydrosphere
Hydrosphere

by Ngaire Jackson from Hillsborough. The sphere represents the earth. The surface of the sphere plays with light and reflections echoing and linking it to the qualities of water and the adjacent spring water fed stream. The shape also represents the bubbles of life-giving oxygen that form within the stream. The surface design represents how the water tumbles and meanders over the rocks.

Whitemountain Cow
Whitemountain Cow

by Kevin Killen A contemporary and distinctive life-like Farm animal that links Limestone to the agriculture of the Townland areas. Inspired by geology and the Lime Kiln process, themed metal words are weaved together as the building blocks to the scale sized Cow. Within the sculpture are incorporated some of the machine parts of recycled horse drawn farm machinery, in this case an early 20th century hay rake. This acts as a link to the hay making process.
