Mad Cow Country Club

Again and again, Some special people in the crowd wake up, They have no ground in the crowd, And they emerge according to much broader laws. They carry strange customs with them And demand room for bold and audacious actions. The future speaks ruthlessly through them.
– Rilke

Mystic Mermaid

This Mermaid will be made of perforated steel, scrap metal, & found objects and stand about 17 feet tall while she basks in the warm playa sun. Her hips will contain a secret chamber and her tail a slide. Burning Man participants will enter her from the front and feel the urge to relax in the cool, watery depths of her interior. Had enough of the shade? Then climb up the rope & wood ladder and venture out to the viewing platform discreetly cradled in the small of her back. Take in the sights within the city limits and beyond or take a ride on her slide. At night enjoy the ambiance of the cauldrons burning bright in her chamber or just admire her from afar with her entire body glowing softly with colored lights from within. She is considered the High Priestess in the Tarot; to the alchemist she is the Siren of the Philosophers, crowned and lactating the milk of enlightenment… She will surely lead many astray at the rocky shores of Black Rock City this year.
