A sculpture of destruction and rebrith.
And giant mushrooms.
Xylophage is a dreamscape of the remnants of a giant tree. The stump of the tree becomes a cozy room with benches, ringed with flames. Surrounding the stump, gargantuan mushrooms have taken root, light and flames creating a warm, fun space for gathering and playing.
The giant fire mushrooms of Xylophage boast 24 poofer effects, each controlled by participants.
Xylophage has 6 separate components-
Big stumpy, 18' tall, 18' wide
Fire Mushrooms, 2 mushrooms, 16' wide caps, 15' tall
LED mushrooms, 2 mushrooms, 6' wide caps, 12' tall
