3 Sculptures Adorning Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral in Cork, Ireland

There are over 1,250 sculptures outside and inside of Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral. This ensemble is five of them on the western façade. They are called the Wise Virgins, representing those who are prepared for Judgement Day. Many of these works were carved by Thomas Nicholls. He is the same 19th century sculptor who adorned the Cardiff Castle, created the first phase of the Animal Wall in Cardiff plus decorated Castell Coch in Wales. All of these works are shown on this website.
