Women posing in front of the giant woman statue "R-Evolution" by: Marco Cochrane

From the Burning Man website: Constructed of steel rods and balls and covered in stainless steel mesh lined with LED lighting effects, R-Evolution was a 48-foot-tall sculpture of a woman, named Deja Solis, who stood firmly with both feet on the ground, eyes closed, arms open at her sides, palms forward, a peaceful expression.­

The culmination of The Bliss Project, a series of three monumental sculptures of a woman, Deja Solis, expressing her humanity, R-Evolution like Bliss Dance and Truth is Beauty, is intended to demand a change in perspective… to be a catalyst for social change.­ She is intended to challenge the viewer to see past the sexual charge that has developed around the female body which has been used for power and control, to the human being.­ We hope to inspire men and women to take action to end violence against women, making room for women’s voices, thus allowing both women and men to live fully and thrive.­

The two models are Renata and Eva, from Slovakia.­
