This piece is inspired by the ruins of Europe as well as the film Castle in the Sky. A stone castle's crumbling shell is set atop a grass floating dirigible, with a tree growing from the center of the castle's foundation. The floating structure of bronze and brass is inspired by steampunk aesthetics.
