The Stairway to Heaven is part of the Circle of Regional Effigies (C.O.R.E.), a group of artwork surrounding the Man. The final artwork was a wooden spiral structure representing one’s journey through life as well as reflecting the shape of the escargot, or snail, a food very much associated with French cuisine. This artwork was burned on Friday, August 30, 2013.
