After spending two years on the side of a building, Dublin's scrap metal squirrel is coming down.

The 3D piece, on the corner of Tara Street and Georges Quay, was created using rubbish collected from the city's streets.

The squirrel was designed by Portuguese artist Artur Bordalo, who made it with things like damaged car parts, TVs, and bike frames.

It was part of a number of installations Bordalo II designed across Europe for his Trash Animals series.

A documentary was made about the construction of the squirrel, which took five days to put together in April 2017.

Bordallo II's scrap squirrel is being taken down because of planned building works.
