These cliffs are one of the most iconic and visited natural attractions in Ireland, towering over the Atlantic Ocean. The cliffs stretch for about 14 kilometers (8.7 miles) along the western coast of Ireland and reach heights of up to 214 meters (702 feet) above sea level. They offer breathtaking panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Aran Islands, and the surrounding coastline. The Cliffs of Moher are a designated UNESCO Global Geopark and are part of the Wild Atlantic Way, a scenic driving route along the western coast of Ireland.

Artist Statement

Syed Fakaruddin skillfully captures the essence of proportion through the depiction of tree trunks. The asymmetry of the roots and the variety presented by the stumps further enrich the narrative. The artwork reflects an individual’s deep reflections on external formations. It subtly implies that these formations find their strength in a central core, a foundational pillar supporting the entire structure. The portrayal of landscapes employs dynamic lines, vivid and full of energy, bringing to life the contours of each unique formation. Moreover, the artwork communicates the notion that the distinctive essence of each form finds expression in its own set of lines, setting it distinctly apart from the rest.
