British artist and designer Gerry Judah has created a new sculpture named JACOB’S LADDER, that’s been added to the Gibbs Farm Sculpture Park in New Zealand.

 

JACOB’S LADDER measures in at 112 feet (34 meters) high and is made from square-sectioned steel tube that weighs 46 tonnes.

To create the design, 480 lengths of steel were stacked one on top of each other, with each layer slightly different in length and size, and then shifted and rotated relative to the layer below, producing the final curving shape.
