Elia


Elia is a sculpture designed by Ingvar Cronhammar in Herning, Denmark. It is a large, spherical dome with four columns reaching 32 meters (105 ft). The dome, itself, has a diameter of 60 meters (200 ft). A large tube located in the center of the sculpture randomly blasts flames 8 meters (26 ft) into the air for about 25 seconds. These random bursts can occur anytime in periods of about 2 months and won’t occur if it is too windy or if people are too close. The work was inaugurated in September 2001 and cost 23 million Danish krone. [Via: wikipedia]
