If you have been to Belfast and haven’t seen The Big Fish it will be worth your while to go back again.
The Big Fish in Belfast is a unique ceramic sculpture made up of tiles which depict prints and drawings about the history of Belfast.
Many of the images were sourced at The Ulster Museum and the drawings were done by schoolchildren from local schools.
The Big Fish was funded by the Laganside Corporation and the National Lottery as part of the regeneration of The River Lagan.
The 33ft sculpture can be seen at Donegall Quay on the bank of the river. It has become one of Belfast’s iconic landmarks and one of the top tourist attractions.
It was commissioned in 1999 and was created by John Kindness. Although it is known as The Big Fish it is more properly called The Salmon of Knowledge in reference to the story of Fionn Mac Cumhaill in the old Irish legend.
