Tiger & Turtle Magic Mountain Sculpture by Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth


German artists Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth happened to the sculpture really unusual. Indeed, this curiosity is located in Duisburg, Germany, and its full name – Tiger & Turtle Magic Mountain Sculpture.

The first thing I would say – is the size of the design. It rises to a maximum of 45 meters above the ground, which means that people get what they actually can enjoy sweeping views of the entire district of the Rhine.

And here is a brief mention of the artists: “The curved flight of stairs inscribes like a signature on the landscape and recruits the nimbus of the classical roller coaster. Having a closer look, the public is disappointed in a disarming way. The visitor climbs on foot via differently steep steps the roller-coaster-sculpture. So the sculpture subtly and ironically plays with the dialectic of promise and disappointment, mobility and standstill. Visitors happen to briefly meet with oncoming visitors on the steep and about 1m | 1yd wide corridors. Led-lights are integrated in the handrails and highlight the flight of stairs so the sculpture is accessible at night, too.

As you can see, there is a kind of loop, which, according to the designers, like a roller coaster and gives the project a singularity. True words, and so it does not hold.
