Floating baby!

Marc Quinn’s “Planet” by itself is spectacle to behold. It was conceived in 2008 to depict his then 7th Month old son as a sleeping baby and appears to be “floating”. He describes it as a paradox – “hugely heavy, yet the bronze appears weightless; overwhelmingly big, yet also an image of vulnerability” and also “It is both a reflection of ourselves and the earth upon which we live.”

The sculpture travelled half the world and is now housed in Meadows, Gardens by the Bay, Singapore.
I wonder how it was set-up. Probably a giant stork helped deliver it.
