An intact sweat house, one of only 3 recorded so far in Kerry. A fire was built inside and raked out. Then it operated as a theraputic sauna with space for 1 or 2 people. Hand visible just inside for scale.
The Solar Egg by Stockholm based design duo Bigert & Bergström – a steel egg plated with gold (reflecting the surrounding landscape of Kiruna in Sweden) with a wood-fired sauna inside.
Made of 69 separate pieces and accessed by a folding golden stairway, the sauna egg is a public art installation which can accommodate eight sweaty patrons at once.
Niamh Geoghegan and Shirley Fitzpatrick decided to build a mobile sauna and travel around Ireland.
The Bosca Beatha left the Hill of Tara on the Summer Soltice (June 21).
We both understand the complete randomness of this adventure but feel that it is the perfect time to remind people about the endless possibilities of their own imaginations. I am tired of all the constant stream of negative news and look forward to discovering the hidden gems, humour, music and sceals of this special island.
Among its many other gifts, I envisage the Bosca Beatha to be bringer of good news stories and I will endeavour to share these with you as we move along. Keep your eyes open and towels at hand, the Bosca Beatha is on its way.
