This metal lady is a 28-foot tall figurative sculpture entitled “Ecstacy” that lived at Patricia Green at Hayes and Octavia Streets in San Francisco for a few years. The work of artists Dan Das Mann and Karen Cusolito, it was constructed from reclaimed steel in 2007 and was first displayed later that year at Burning Man. It held court at Patricia’s Green from 2010 until 2012. It now resides in a private collection. I always used to wonder what would happen if she started moving and walking around, perhaps in search of an oil can or some WD-40. Then again, this being San Francisco, people probably wouldn’t be fazed in the least.
