Zodiac Heads of Ai Weiwei leave their post

(Jackson, Wyo.) - The Zodiac Heads of Chinese artist Ai Weiwei are very carefully being taken down today, after more than seven months looking over the National Elk Refuge. According to Jennifer Marshall Weydeveld, Director of Marketing for the National Museum of Wildlife Art , a crane is moving each of the 12 monumental sculptures very slowly to a staging area where they are being packed up to be put in crates. By tomorrow, these sculptures will be strapped down and ready for shipment. Here are some photos of the delicate process: [image: Inline image 1][image: Inline image 3][image: Inline image 2] *The de-installation process for the Ai Weiwei exhibit. h/t National Museum of Wildlife Art / Pitchengine Communities.* The exhibit, officially titled "Ai Weiwei: Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads,” represents the animals of the Chinese zodiac by esteemed Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. These sculptures have been on the Museum’s Sculpture Trail overlooking the National Elk Refuge since May 9.
