City of Ulaanbaatar Park
About This Piece
In addition to being a symbol of warmth and comfort, the Tulga sculpture represents the spirit of the home. The three rings represent the sun, the moon, and the stars. The top of the four legs are sculpted to imitate a bird’s head, birds which protect the fire. The base mount of the sculpture incorporates the symbol of the endless knot pattern in the center of the circular base platform, which represent infinity and eternal bliss, foreboding an eternity of good omens for our children and the people who visit the park. The specific positioning of the sculpture also equate the Tulga in alignment with the earth, as each of its four legs are an alignment to the four cardinal directions.
