TOURISTS who are usually unable to get near the famous formation of Stonehenge kicked off their shoes and bounced on a life-sized inflatable replica.

The structure, which dates back to around 3100 BC, is a familiar image on the Wiltshire skyline, but this week it appeared at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP).

Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller’s interactive artwork, Sacrilege, ‘popped up’ in West Bretton on Wednesday and proved popular with kids and adults alike.

Clare Lilley, director of programme at YSP, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Sacrilege to YSP and hope our visitors enjoyed this irreverent and playful work in a truly memorable experience.”

Stonehenge, in the form of a bouncy castle, is a free exhibition touring the country as part of the nationwide London 2012 festival.

British artist Mr Deller said: “A lot of my work deals with history, and Sacrilege is no exception. This is a way to get re-acquainted with ancient Britain with your shoes off.”
