Bronze sculpture by Charlie Mallon.

Boars were symbols of strength and wealth to the ancient Celts. Helmets and shields often featured the image of a boar with exaggerated bristles along its back.

This work was inspired by the legend of Diarmuid, his half-brother and the prophecy that bound them both together. Diarmuid was a formidable warrior of the Irish Fianna and he battled a great boar on the slopes of Ben Gulbain. You can read more of the story here.

Each sculpture has been created using the traditional lost wax method of bronze casting. A unique patina has been developed by burying the newly cast bronze in the iron rich soil by a spa well on the farm in County Tyrone.
