Methuselah is a life-sized steel and stained glass replica of the oldest living tree in the world, a 4,848 year old bristlecone pine located in Eastern California. This installation provided a mythical space for aerial and dance performances and offer a tranquil place for self reflection, intimate conversation, and connection around its burning hearth. Led by artists Misha Naiman and Gray Davidson, this sculpture was constructed by Majorelle Arts for Burning Man 2017.
