Flaming Lotus Girls and The Serpent Mother

I worked on The Serpent Mother for Burning Man 2006. I can’t tell anymore if that was a long time ago or not. Regardless, here is a little tour…

The Serpent Mother’s head and back, silhouetted against the Black Rock Desert sky

Before I joined the Flaming Lotus Girls, one of their first and bestest pieces was The Seven Sisters

A closeup of Alcyon, my favorite of the Seven Sisters. A spinning ball of fire!

The Hand of God, another piece that predates my joining FLG. It shoots liquid methanol under high pressure

A big crowd

One part I worked on was her LED underbelly

Propane flows through her spine like blood
