Created in 2008, the immense artwork installation is a seven month old sleeping infant fabricated from painted bronze and steel, which is designed to give the impression of being weightless and suspended in mid-air despite the fact it weighs 7 tons and 10m in length.

According to the internationally acclaimed British artist, his interpretation towards Planet is a paradox which looks huge and heavy. However, the bronze appears weightless but overwhelmingly big, yet depict an image of vulnerability.
