This public art sculpture of a giant baby floating at Singapore’s gardens of the Bay is a breathtaking example of urban art engaging with its surroundings. Created by British artist Marc Quinn, the public art sculpture depicts an image of the artist’s seven month-old son sleeping. The mammoth sculpture, which weighs seven tons and is over 10 meters long, was created using painted bronze and steel to give the impression of weightlessness.

The piece entitled ‘Planet’ looks surreal and imposing against the night lights of Singapore’s skyline. Artist Marc Quinn describes his work: "To me, Planet is a paradox - hugely heavy, yet the bronze appears weightless; overwhelmingly big, yet also an image of vulnerability. It is both a reflection of ourselves and the earth upon which we live."
