The Bouquetin are nearly as old as the mountains and the sky that surround it. Fossils of Alpine ibex (Capra ibex) have been found dating back to the late Pleistocene period, nearly 10,000 years ago. Although they evolved long after humans mastered fire, they maintain an ancient relationship to the land. Sightings of these rare ibex, however fleeting, inspire mystery and awe. The fire sculpture that Myth Makers, Donna Dodson and Andy Moerlein created in the Swiss Alps, evokes the majestic nature of these beasts.

Update: Watch the video by Lexi Bella of Andy Moerlein and Donna Dodson's Fire Sculpture in Verbier
