Ireland’s cultural heritage presents us with a physical connection with communities that have settled on the island since prehistory. This section of the 3D Icons website reflects the array of monuments and buildings that we are likely to encounter in the Irish landscape. Prehistory is represented by large-scale monuments such as Poulnabrone portal tomb, Co. Clare or the royal site of Navan Fort (Eamhain Mhacha), Co. Armagh. The sculptural tradition is represented by the mythical figures from Boa Island, Co. Fermanagh and the complex, but artistically related, early figures on the Carndonagh and Fahan slabs, Co. Donegal. The high points of early sculpture range from the stylised forms of the Turoe Stone, Co. Galway to the intricate panels of a high cross such as the Market Cross, Co. Meath. The buildings of Ireland vary considerably in their extents and styles and in an attempt to display this diversity the island’s architectural tradition is represented by the medieval Gallarus Oratory, Co. Kerry and Kilmainham Jail, Dublin City.
