Steel, painted; 17 x 3 x 8 meters

Representing a 1:1 scale replica of a deformed Merklin steel lattice mast, the sculpture refers to a fire-breathing hybrid creature embodied in many myths, symbolizing the overcoming of difficulties before reaching a high goal: Especially in China and Japan, the dragon is worshipped as a lucky charm and demon repellent. The power pole converted into a dragon is intended to remind patients, hospital staff and visitors of these qualities.
