Into the Wardrobe...


If you ever venture to East Belfast's Connswater area on the Newtownards Road, be sure to stop by
C.S. Lewis Square.  Stepping into the Wardrobe, or 'The Searcher', is a wonderful bronze sculpture by Ross Wilson marking the beginning of a journey into Narnia.


Meeting some evil creatures along the way...
Maurice Harron is the artist who created Maugrim from stainless steel

Around another bend, the White Witch casts her spell...

I was more enthralled by her snowflake cape.  It's a beautiful work of art made from stainless steel also.


 And just in case you missed him yesterday, Aslan lofitly watches over the whole scene.
(He's A magnificent 3 metre tall bronze sculpture)



Thanks for your comments!
