It was designed by Turner Prize winner Jeremy Deller and is called ‘Sacrilege’. It is the first time a work by this artist has been on display in Scotland and has proved to be very popular since it went on display last week.

It is one of the displays in the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art which continues until Monday 7th May. After that it will be displayed in other parts of the UK before going to London for the Olympic Games.

The installation is deflated at 6pm every night and re-inflated in minutes the following morning.

When I passed it was bring used by people of various ages and when I pass the next time I may be tempted to have a go myself.
