This piece shows Alice from Alice in Wonderland exploring Glasnevin. We see her: tower over the striking Our Lady of Dolours Church; sulk on the sundial in the National Botanic Gardens; become with nature in the Botanic's Rose Garden; and burst through the roof of the old Glasnevin National School building, colloquially known as the Ink Bottle. Our goal was to create a whimsical design that could appeal to all ages as well as bring attention to local landmarks both past and present.
We are two sisters aged 20 and 18. We have been doing art together since we were very young and would love to do this project as a team. We have lived in Glasnevin all our lives and would like to brighten it up.
