Christ Church Cathedral is situated in Dublin and is the elder of the capital city's two medieval cathedrals, the other being St Patrick's Cathedral.


The cathedral was founded in the early 11th century under the Viking king Sitric Silkenbeard. It was rebuilt in stone in the late 12th century under the Norman potentate Strongbow, and considerably enlarged in the early 13th century, using Somerset stones and craftsmen.


A partial collapse in the 16th century left it in poor shape and the building was extensively renovated and rebuilt in the late 19th century, giving it the form it has today, including the tower, flying buttresses, and distinctive covered footbridge.


In this artwork I created an underwater echancting scene, inspired by the beautiful, complex and layered  architecture of the Cathedral however I wanted to offset it's grandious structure with a playful and uplifting animal. 


Seal's are known to be very friendly, fun-loving and cheerful. 


This particular seal is surrounded by all his friends: the introvert fish under the bridge, the 3 marching Dublin Bay Prawns and the little fish swimming out of the tower. Can you spot them all? 


The North of Dublin offers great viewing sites to spot seals in their natural environment.
