Quick stop by to read and snap a few pics. Certainly draws a lot of attention. The coffee shop near it is amazing....Cafe Neros.

Sculpture of two women situated outside the Victoria Street entrance to the Railway/Train station. I have seen some tourists taking photos beside this, and when you stand to look at them, they are impressive...most times we rush by and don't even notice them.

This has been around for so long it's easy to overlook it if you pass it regularly. Excellent piece of sculpture. Was somewhat controversial when it first appeared all those years. Perhaps we live in more enlightened times. Very popular with tourists for photo opportunities.

Nothing wrong about the breaking up for the monotony and boredom of a city with such splendid pieces. Belfast needs more of such street art.
