Tir na nOg Gate Detail

ornate metal gate detail

This is a detail of an art installation in Stratford by artist Mark Czajkowski called tir na nOg - Land of Youth. It is an ornate metal gateway from Downie Street into a small park. Tir na nOg is a popular otherworld in Irish mythology thought to be on an island far beyond the edges of maps and reachable only by a long, challenging journey or by invitation from a fairy who lived there.
