Saoirse is a three-sided steel obelisk inspired from megalithic standing stones found throughout Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England. Saoirse (pronounced SEER-shuh) is the Irish word for freedom and is inscribed on the front face of this piece using Ogham letters, an ancient Celtic script. Instead of being carved onto the surface, these letters pierce the reddish skin to reveal a white interior featuring an exterior grade LED accent flood light for nighttime illumination.
