An impressive piece of New Age bling has arrived in New York City.
Perched on a pedestal for maximum cosmic energy harnessing, the Rose Crystal Tower has assumed its mantle in the heart of Union Square.
The 31-foot-high beacon for channeling the vibrations of the universe, in a fetching shade of millennial pink at that, was created by sculptor Dale Chihuly. Known for his nature-inspired works that somehow crystallize sunbeams and ocean waves into ethereal glass sculptures, each chunk of the Rose Crystal Tower was cast from a special plastic called Polyvitro.
You’ve got until October 2018 to commune with the power of the rose crystal. And if you’d like to see more of Chihuly’s work, his takeover of the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx is going on through the end of October.
For best results, see the exhibit on a Chihuly Night, when the garden brings in musical guests and cocktails to pair with your experience.
