The Wooden Sculpture ‘Wood Quay’ by Michael Warren outside the offices of Dublin City Council is meant to invoke the prow of a Viking longship.
I am not a fan of the wooden sculpture located outside Dublin City Civic Offices at Wood Quay but now that it has been painted black it looks much better when seen from the North side of the river.
Michael Warren (born 1950 in Gorey, County Wexford, Ireland) is an Irish sculptor who produces site-specific public art.
Inspired by Oisín Kelly, his art teacher at St Columba’s College, Michael Warren studied at Bath Academy of Art, at Trinity College, Dublin and, from 1971-75, at the Accademia di Brera in Milan. He now lives and works in Co. Wexford.

At the northern entrance to the village of Leighlinbridge, County Carlow, is a sculpture by Michael Warren, depicting the thrones of the ancient seat of the Kings of South Leinster at Dinn Righ (The hill of the Kings). The Kings of Leinster lived near the village.
