River Gods/Ecosystem, by Hugh Lorigan, is a mural in the West Pier Pumping Station in Dún Laoghaire, incorporating brightly coloured ceramic vessels and plaques depicting human, animal and marine forms. The vessels refer to ancient earthenware jars used for the containment and transportation of liquids, a direct reference to the function of the building in which they are housed. The face panels allude to the watchful River Gods. Viewing is by appointment only and can be arranged by contacting the DLR Arts Office on (01) 271-9531 or by clicking here.
