The Big Fish Sculpture was created by artist John Kindness, and stands on Donegall Quay in the midst of the docklands redevelopment area. It was commissioned to celebrate the regeneration of Belfast docks.
Each scale of the fish is a tile depicting some aspect of Belfast's past - a newspaper cutting, a letter, a photograph, an illustration maybe of a sailing ship, a scene from Belfast's history or maybe a portrait. What at first sight seems to be an outsize fish turns into a complex mosaic of Belfast, crammed with information waiting to be unlocked.
It has become Belfast's best loved sculpture and now a symbol of the city.
