Outside the Museum of Art in Reno stands a giant steel blossom. The sculpture, which debuted at Burning Man, is meant to inspire viewers to reflect on Earth’s ecological crisis.

“Guardian of Eden” was created by New York-based artist Kate Raudenbush, who often explores environmental issues through her work. Raudenbush describes her inspiration for “Guardian of Eden” as “a cross pollination of Hindu and Egyptian creation myth, Buddhist symbolism and the ancient symbol of the Flower Of Life.” At night, blue lights project an interlocking circular design onto the ground beneath the sculpture.
