Visiting the Titanic Kit sculpture in Belfast

The Titanic Kit is a contemporary sculpture, designed by Tony Stallard, located in the Titanic Quarter in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Completed in 2009, Kit is a bronze and steel sculpture of the RMS Titanic, 14 metres tall and 4 metres wide.The work is located on the quayside of the Abercon Basin, which is now known as Belfast Harbour Marina. Work began on the project in 2008, and cost £200,000. The project was funded jointly by the Titanic Quarter and Arts And Business Northern Ireland. Kit takes the form of an oversized Airfix model kit and has a number of components recognizable as parts from the RMS Titanic. The structure of the artwork gives the illusion that pieces have been broken off for its construction. In recognition of its history, the original shipbuilders of the RMS Titanic, Harland and Wolff were commissioned to build the sculpture.
