The Saipan Dragons, Saipan

The stunning Saipan Dragons live in the lobby of the Imperial Palace in Saipan, the largest of the Northern Mariana Islands, which is a commonwealth of the United States in the western Pacific Ocean.

Spanning over 60 metres and weighing 40 tonnes, the sculpture features two flying dragons which are made of stainless steel and gold, and studded with an incredible 2.5 million crystals.

Made by the Czech design and glassmaking company LASVIT, the installation fits into the overall design concept created by DSAA architects.

The Dragons, who appear to be in mid-flight, are of course suspended proudly on Macalloy Stainless SC460 cables.
