The Lady of Thanksgiving or ‘Nuala with the Hula’ as she is often referred to in Belfast is a £300,000 public art sculpture (19.5 m high) constructed in 2007 in Thanksgiving Square. The sculpture is the second largest public art sculpture in Northern Ireland and has been adopted as an icon in Belfast for tourism, TV companies and local businesses.
The sculpture is the result of six years of planning, development and eventual fabrication. Made of stainless steel and cast bronze, she spirals upwards and holds aloft “the ring of thanksgiving”. The globe at her feet indicates the universal philosophy of peace, harmony and thanksgiving.
