The Metal Man is located at Rosses Point, the entrance to Sligo Harbour. As a symbol of Sligo he was important to the Yeats children and Jack was to include the twelve foot high figure in numerous drawings including 'Memory Harbour', the original of which he gave to W.B. Yeats and which was included as one of the plates to accompany the Cuala Press edition of Reveries Over Childhood and Youth.
Lily Yeats' bookplate, designed by Jack (see lot 187) was to incorporate the Metal Man reading a book and this design was evidently used by Lily as a desk seal.
