Color needs to be touched up but otherwise a nice monument in a lovely park. It really does look like Oscar Wilde. The only problem is finding said park.

I really think this statute of Oscar Wilde really captures the individual that he was. Laying out on holders in the corner of Merrion Square.

Lovely tribute to a literary genius in this land and good amount of interesting exhibits and so in the museum nearby

The monument is in-craved in a big rock in a corner of the Merrion Square Park in Dublin. It is easy to miss. Great stop to the Oscar Wilde author admirers.

Informal, colourful, fitting tribute to Oscar Wilde. Queues build up for photo opportunity but well worth it when out walking. Nice location, easy to find.

In St Stephens Park this 20th century depiction of the famous man is a little to modern in appearance. But at least it is a tribute to him.

This is one of the most unique statues I have ever seen, and although I am not a reader of Oscar Wilde, it probably sums him up nicely. There is also an information board nearby which can be easily missed.

Most statues depict famous people in stiff formal poses. Nobody can say this is a formal statue but it is a fitting tribute to a colorful character. I feel more statues should be like this and truly reflect the personality of the honoree. I found it enjoyable to see despite the number of tourists taking selfies with Oscar.

There is a reclining statue (painted) and two columns with some of his more memorable pithy sayings which are worth seeing. Don't go just for that though; the Merrion Square Park as a whole is really great and there are a number of other memorial statues here that are also worth seeing (especially that for Bernardo O'Higgins, the hero of Chilean independence.

We walked by the park where the Oscar Wilde statue sits and stopped by for a look. As far as statues go I would rank this near the top of the list. It was very cool to see him lying on the rock relaxing. If I could have got up there and relaxed next to him for a picture I would have but I couldn't get up the rock. ha ha. Not sure I would go out of the way to view unless you are a big fan but definitely worth a look.
