9 Section – 2 Row Carousel
22’ Platform (26’ Overall Diameter)
The upscale Busan Premium Outlets, located in Busan, the second largest city in South Korea, is home to a new Carousel Works creation. Hand-crafted and especially designed by Carousel Works for Shinsegae Simon Co., this full-sized, traditional carousel is truly one-of-a-kind.
The theme of the carousel was inspired by the color palette of the Tuscan countryside. The carousel features both warrior and princess themed horses and unicorns suspended from roped brass poles, as well as one stationary bench seat – a Roman-style chariot. The hand-carved figures are all the intricately designed with fairytale whimsy and fun.
The panels located on the carousel’s eight Rounding Boards feature custom painted artwork murals. The artwork incorporates the carved figures and chariots into whimsical fairytale scenes. The horses come to life in artwork that includes princesses, princes, castles, knights, and majestic locations.
In February 2014, the Carousel Works installation crew traveled to Busan, South Korea in order to set-up the carousel. The installation took approximately six days to complete.
