Now awake at the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Western Avenue is “Sleeping Dragon,” a sculpture recently installed and unveiled at its new, permanent home in front of the Kirkpatrick Oil Company building, 1001 W. Wilshire.

Constructed of chrome rods and bound by cables, the sculpture snakes at 73 feet long. It made its debut last week, after traveling around the world for stops at the likes of New York City’s Museum of Modern Art.

New York-based artist Kenneth Snelson made three such 3-D sculptures. “It’s a privilege to be able to enjoy such a prominent piece ... on a daily basis,” said Mike Steele, Kirkpatrick Oil president, in a statement. —Gazette staff
