4 Minds # 1

‘4 Minds’ (1997) is a sculpture in Limestone by Diarmuid O’Twohighk and is located at Mill Road in Ennis, County Clare, Ireland.

 

The concept is based on a combination of Greek and Christian philosophy:

 

Head 1 – the concept of Care.

Head 2 – the concept of Spirit of Tranquility and Harmony.

Head 3 – the concept of Angst and Anxiety that is part of Being in the World.

Head 4 - the concept of desire for the totality of Being.

 

The use of the joined hands beneath each head endeavours to express the Christian will towards unity of mind and spirit.

 

Can you guess the theme of each head?
