Crown Dubai Installs "Flying Carpet" Sculpture


Crown Fine Art, a division of Crown Worldwide Group, serves large and small museums, major art galleries, auction houses, artists and private collectors providing art packing, customized crating, art shipping and transport, hanging services and exhibition coordination completed the full installation of a magnificent 40 foot high, 1.5 ton "Flying Carpet" sculpture last week at the Jumeirah Creek Hotel in Dubai, scheduled to open in June 2012.

The amazing artwork was created by renowned Middle Eastern artist,  Halim Al Karim. The challenging installation was set on a wall 200 feet above the ground and required iron-nerved art installers to assemble the piece in a cradle at such heights, as well as an organized ground crew providing essential support.

By the end of the final day, there were some immensely proud faces of the team members who had been calm under pressure and innovative throughout. Next month, Crown Fine Art is installing an additional sculpture of equal magnitude but of very different variety at the same hotel.
