The American artist Rita McBride has designed the sculpture “Mae West“ for the reshaping of a public square in Munich. The sculpture has the form of a hyperboloid and consists of a double structure made out of carbon fibre tubes. Its overall height is 52 m, the diameter is 32 m at the bottom and 19.5 m at the top — whereas it is only 7.5 m at the sculpture‘s “waistline“.
