Proposal Name: Bring 20 Apes to Life
Proposal Category: Ecosystem Fund Allocation
We believe that sculptures have the power to transform people, enliven communities, and immortalize culture. We are passionate about bringing the Bored Ape Yacht Club collection to life with 20 unique 1/1 sculptures in a way it has never been done before. They will be full body and life-size 1.9m or 6ft tall, highly detailed masterpieces made of the finest materials to be displayed in Ape Fests, BAYC Miami Club House, Web3 events, galleries and public spaces, where they will be enjoyed by people of all ages.
We believe that sculptures have the power to transform people, enliven communities, and immortalize culture. We are passionate about bringing the Bored Ape Yacht Club collection to life with 20 unique 1/1 sculptures in a way it has never been done before.
Our sculptures will be full body and life-size 1.9m or 6ft tall, highly detailed masterpieces made of the finest materials. Each of the 20 sculptures will be unique, capturing the essence of the Bored Ape Yacht Club collection. The sculptures will be displayed in a Ape Fests, BAYC Miami Club House, Web3 events, galleries and public spaces, where they will be enjoyed by people of all ages.
We believe that these sculptures will aid to massively promote the IP. The sculptures will be more than just works of art. They will be symbols for the Bored Ape mission’s and values. They will inspire viewers to create, bring the people within and outside the community closer, bring people joy and create a sense of pride and wonder.
Which apes will be chosen to be made into a sculpture?
Each ape will be able to participate through a form in which they agree they want their ape to participate. After having all participants, the selection will be made through a community vote.
Who owns the sculptures?
What will happen with the sculptures?
They will be auctioned at ApeFest 2 or online to the BAYC and MAYC community. The purchase will be powered by Ape Coin and funds will go back to the DAO.
Sculptures will be able to be replicated for a fraction of the cost in the future for the DAO. Replicating them won’t be labor intensive. This includes apes variations since many traits are shared through the collection.
