Indian Sculpture Park V

We are still here in the Indian Sculpture Park at Victoria's Way, Roundwood, Co Wicklow and in a small clearing in the forest we happen upon the startling sculpture of the Split Man.  Again we defer to our oracle, Victor Langheld : "Failing to realize the true self leaves the Split Man incomplete, unfulfilled and miserable." He therefore needs to die in order to start again.  Only when he has attained his goal of enlightenment and joy can he become like the figure on the left, with all stress extinguished - Nirvana Man aka Mr Cool!
