Bliss, the Dancing Lady, turns away from the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco skyline (seen in the distance of this photo). The 40-foot tall steel sculpture by SF artist Marco Cochrane was created for Burning Man, and then moved to The Great Lawn that skirts Palm Drive on Treasure Island. The statue was taken down in 2015 when it became unstable because of water damage caused by the salty climate of SF Bay.
The Dancing Lady was created for the 2010 Burning Man. It was modeled by Bay Area-based singer and dancer Deja Solis. The sculpture was photographed by Aaron Rogosin at the festival, and he has posted an album of stills: Burning Man 2010 Metropolis.

Bliss is being repaired and will be permanently relocated to San Leandro according to ABC7news: Naked Sculpture in San Leandro Stirs Mixed Emotions.
