Here's Mary at Oscar Wilde's statue

Here's Mary at Oscar Wilde's (Oscar Fingal O’Flahertie Wills Wilde) statue in Merrion Square in Dublin. I think Wilde, even as the snob he could be, would have liked this portrayal of himself. He leans back looking at his family home number 1 Merrion Square, across the street. (The Dail Eireann, the Irish parliament, is on the other end of the street) Merlin Holland, Wilde’s grandson was the model used for the sculpture’s head.

Here's another shot of Mary at the Westin, Dublin. We were  exhausted at that point, having spent two weeks around the Ireland, most of that time with the flue. Still in all, it was fun.
