The Big Fish

The Big Fish

This 10m (32ft) salmon was commissioned in 1999 to celebrate the regeneration of the River Lagan and the historic importance of the site. The outer ‘skin’ is a cladding of ceramic tiles decorated with texts and images relating to the history of Belfast.

Description

If you're visiting the Lagan Lookout, or admiring the Customs House, you'll notice a big fish sculpture beside the Lagan. It was created by John Kindness, and the most interesting thing about this fish are its beautiful blue scales. Every scale is a tile, and every tile tells a story about the city.
