Is this not brilliant? A man named Jim Ricks created this variation on the bouncy castle, the Poulnabrone Bouncy Dolmen (more pictures and information at that link), referred to as a monumental inflatable sculpture, to be a public artwork.
Regular readers, a concept we doggedly refuse to stop pretending is real, know that we occasionally do posts on replicas of megalithic sites other than Stonehenge. This one is a surprisingly accurate rendering of the Poulnabrone Dolmen in Burren, County Clare, Ireland, as seen in the above photo by Keith Drummond.
Our warm thanks to friend of the blog Feòrag NicBhrìde for passing the link along to us! It may go without saying but we now have a second Clonehenge wish. Right after our hope for a Stonehenge replica in space we will now be keeping our fingers crossed and looking out for a bouncy Stonehenge!
We have faith in the Stonehenge replica imperative (Rule 34 s): Whatever it is, there is (or will be) a Stonehenge made of it. No exceptions. That bouncy Stonehenge may be out there already, at a child’s party in Singapore or a medieval fair in the Czech Republic. It’s just a matter of time until it appears online.
And we’ll be here to let you know. Until then, friends, happy henging!
NEWSFLASH!! As of April 19, 2012, mankind’s dream of a bouncy Stonehenge has been realised. With tears of deep emotion we offer you this, our post on the ultimate achievement of our species, Jeremy Deller’s bouncy inflatable Stonehenge. Oh, sweet world that answers our deepest and most hoped-for desires!
