Today I overheard a gentleman explain to his daughter what a 'Mexican Wave' was and did not realise why they were having the conversation until I discovered that when this sculpture was originally installed it was referred to by locals as the Mexican Wave. Previously exhibited in Japan under the title Geisha, renamed An Cailín Bán by the artist and soon after it was finally renamed as Awaiting the Mariner, the sculpture was gift from Mexican artist Sebastian to the city of Dublin.
This tall antlered-figure is also known as the Sore On The Shore by some who do not like it.
