This impressive bronze sculpture weighs a hefty 7 tonnes and is 9m long and 3m tall. It portrays an oversized reproduction of the artist’s own son, Lucas, as a baby. The sculpture’s weight is masterfully balanced on the infant’s right hand, creating the illusion that it is floating in the air. Created in 2008, the sculpture was first exhibited at the Beyond Limits exhibition of contemporary sculpture at Chatsworth House, then later as part of The Littoral Zone in 2012 at the Musee Oceanographique, Monaco. Planet is part of a trilogy of sculptures based on the early yeras of Marc Quinn's son, which also includes Lucas (2003) and Innoscience (2004). 

This sculpture was donated by Mr & Mrs Putra Masagung.
