Long Description:
Pobl Fel Ni / People Like Us - 1993 - A realistic sculpture of a typical young local couple, and their attentive pooch, who would have lived and worked in this multicultural area then known as 'Tiger Bay' when this area was a thriving commercial port. This area is now known as Mermaid Quay, part of the Cardiff Bay, re-development.

"Conceived and produced by Welsh artist John Clinch, this bronze sculpture celebrates the people of Cardiff Bay. Clinch comments 'the woman reflects the diverse cultural and ethnic mix of the docks and, in his boots and overalls, the man is a reminder of the once world-famous, busy port. The dog is for children to enjoy'." Source: (visit link)
Breed: Great Dane.

Date Built: 1993
