Fish Causeway Hospital, Coleraine

Fish Main Entrance Sculpture

Winner of a Public Art Commission, delivered on time and to budget. Commissioned by the Northern Health and Social Care Trust for the Causeway Hospital, Coleraine to design, produce and install a site specific sculpture for the main hospital entrance which incorporates two water features each side of the main entrance doors. The bronze sculpture consists of two main elements forming a broken arch of leaping salmon that starts in one pool and ends in the other. The arch depicts a flow of water populated by a host of salmon which represent the circle of life and are relate to Coleraine history. Coleraine exists because early Bronze Age nomads settled and stayed at Mountsandel because of the abundance of salmon in the river. The bronze salmon reflect the history of the River Bann and the significant Bronze Age artefacts that were found at Mountsandel.
