The Tart With the Cart

This is the name given by the Dubliners to a statue of the famous Molly Malone of song who "wheel'd her wheel barrow through streets broad and narrow crying cockles and mussels alive, alive o!" It stands near the University in Dublin, Ireland.

Must be the cleavage that earned her that name. I'd love to go to Ireland.

Well, when you are sculpting a fictional character, you can make it look anyway you want without fear of the subject raising objections. LOL


Sunshine - the Irish are very welcoming and hospitable and the country is beautiful.

Appropriately dubbed.
