DAILY PHOTO: Planet

Believe it or not, this is a seven ton bronze sculpture. It’s only painted white and only appears to be a material as light as plastic. That seven tons is cantilevered off that one arm (i.e. the back of the hand is all that touches the ground.)

It’s called “Planet” and it was sculpted by Marc Quinn in 2008.

Here is a pic from farther away that may offer more sense of scale.

    Cool but seems too space age to my personal taste..it reminds me of the gigantic vegetables in woody Allen’s space age film “sleeper”..
