harmonic convergence

Dame Street / Dublin, Ireland
This is the "Crann an Óir", otherwise known as the Tree of Gold, a well known sculpture by Eamonn O'Doherty located on the plaza in front of the Central Bank of Ireland. I was not attracted to it so much for its own appearance (the globe form actually sits of top of a rather narrow greenish pole and looks like an over sized lollipop) but more for how the geometric form, color, and texture of the sculpture converged with the clean angular lines of the Central Bank in the background.

More banks should offer golden lollipops.
