Ahmedabad, January 2021.
Taking inspiration from the growing popularity of the Monolith sculpture, Symphony Ltd., world’s largest air cooler company collaborated with an artist to create a monolith installation at the Symphony Forest Park in Ahmedabad. The steel sculpture was installed last week to promote conservation of nature and wildlife sanctuaries in India, including, Gir National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary – Gujarat. The triangular prism-shaped structure, around seven feet tall, has the latitudes and longitudes of various national parks tactfully inscribed on it.
Over the weekend, people flocked at the Symphony Forest park to witness the monolith. This evoked conversations about nature conservation and sustainability, which is the essence of the sculpture. The citizens enjoyed the mystery of unlocking new ideas and thoughts in conjunction with humanity and nature. It showcases how brands are leveraging trends and contemporary art to generate positive conversations around themes like environmentalism and sustainability.

On 20th December 2020 a similar structure was spotted in England. Now they have been reported to be spotted in the Netherlands and Columbia. Overnight the monolith became a sensation and generated worldwide conversations. These sculptures have taken the internet by storm, with numerous theories about their origins and meanings.
