See J3474 : The Custom House, Belfast. There are three heads on the southern side of the Custom House. I have not been able to discover their identity. Any information will be welcomed. The mesh is protection against roosting starlings.
The Custom House, Belfast

The Custom House was built in 1854/7 to a design by Charles Lanyon and WH Lynn. The building is rich in detail and features several ornamental heads as well as figures (designed by the architects and carved by Thomas Fitzpatrick) of Britannia flanked by Neptune and Mercury.
