Colossus is a 70-foot maypole with three 10,000-pound rocks suspended from a rotating gyre at the top. Brave Faire attendees can stand under the stones and move them by pulling chains.
Maker Faire organizers say they've reviewed all installations for safety. This project was originally created for the 2005 Burning Man.
