The Flying Mountain
One Hat One Hand collaborated with internationally renowned Artist Shrine to create The Flying Mountain. This 40-foot talisman sculpture, located in the center of a vast clearspan space, creates a focal point for inhabitants of the building for both wayfinding and a deeper spiritual meaning.
Shrine is a muralist and installation artist known for large-scale temples that are hand-painted and adorned by trash and found objects. His visionary art practice is a progressive, spiritual and social stance demonstrating his desire for sustainable living. Shrine refers to his confluence of global art projects as the Empire of Love as ritual and a movement.
Fabrication and construction took place at One Hat One Hand’s 35,000 sq. foot studio. From design and pre-visualization through welding and assembly, we prepared the perfect palette for Shrine to apply painting, assemblage, and folk art brush stroke decoration and recycled objects he is known for.
