« BackTyre sculpture on display at County Buildings

la PoeteMembers the public are being urged to view a piece of sculpture made from tyres, which is on display at Kerry County Council.

Sculptor Mick Davis was a recipient of a Kerry County Council Artist Bursary this year.

His most recent work ‘La Poete’ is currently on display in County Buildings, Tralee for a number of weeks.

This sculpture takes inspiration from Rodin’s (RO-DAN’S) ‘The Thinker’, but is made entirely out of tyres, not bronze.

In 2014 Mick Davis began working with old tyres, as an enthusiastic cyclist he was aware of the issue of disposing of old bicycle tyres.
