Flaming Lotus Girls
San Francisco, CA
The Serpent Mother is a 168-foot-long sculpture of a skeletal serpent coiled around her egg. It was shown at Burning Man in 2006.
Flaming Lotus Girls is a volunteer-based group of artists who make large-scale kinetic fire art. It began in 2000, in San Francisco, California, as a group of six women and two men who wanted to gain the fabrication skills and design experience needed to create large sculptural installations. The group now includes over 100 members. The Flaming Lotus Girls were featured in Dust & Illusions, a documentary about the history of Burning Man.
In addition to Burning Man, the group's works are often seen at the annual Maker Faire in San Mateo..
