An art collective known as Reckless Rainbow has taken responsibility for the creation, which was installed on the famous beach yesterday morning following a short appearance at the Castlepalooza music festival in Tullamore, Co Offaly last weekend.

The work of art is based on Brigid's Cross, a Christian symbol which is believed to afford protection against darkness.

The collective has launched a crowd-funding campaign to build another work of art, called Brigid's Crossing, for display at the seven-day Burning Man festival in Nevada in the US from August 25, which features the ritual burning of a large wooden effigy.
