Atkinson was headmaster of the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art, 1918-1937, and first director of the National College of Art. Designed as a temporary installation, this was a cement covered timber structure, 12 metres high. The medallions of Griffith and Collins were made of plaster and modeled by Albert Power. Following the assassination of Kevin O’Higgins in 1927, a third plaque was added. This cenotaph was replaced with a permanent Oblisk by Raymond McGrath in 1950's.
