This display of life size figures were made as part of a project facilitated by Mayo-based artist Tom Meskell. Nine young people aged 15 to 18 took part in this project. Over five three hour workshops the group created life-size figures from paper and wire. The inspiration for the figures comes from the museum’s galleries, turning characters from rural Irish history into glowing pieces of art.
