Located near the very centre of Dublin, opposite the GPO, the life-size bronze statue of novelist James Joyce has become one of the city's most iconic monuments. Leaning on a cane, one hand in his pocket and crossed-legged,  Joyce strikes a distinctly Chaplinesque pose. Some Dubliners dislike how Joyce's chin is jauntily elevated, how his nose sticks snootily into the air. In return -- as they do with all the city's monuments -- they have given the statue a cheeky nickname, "the prick with the stick". Commissioned by the local business community, it was installed by sculptor Marjorie Fitzgibbon in 1990.
