Still Waters

Like all Nomad Clan work Still Waters is very much a story of the city in which it sits.  It contains a nod to Belfast's ship building heritage, its linen and its rope industry. As well as the wolf being on Belfast's shield, wolves were once an integral part of the Irish countryside and culture. 
The stance between wolf & modern young woman is a subtle reference to the tension during the troubles, a retrospective look and acknowledgement of past and present, with her proud heritage reflected in a neck tattoo. Often Nomad Clan use androgynous characters in their murals, but in Belfast it was a deliberate choice to represent a queer female in a place that’s banned gay marriage and struggles with women's rights
