World's Largest Baby, Planet@ Gardens By The Bay - PhotoHunt
Meet the world's largest baby! For this week's PhotoHunt theme, I went down to Gardens by the Bay to photograph “Planet”, the giant sculpture of a 7-month old sleeping baby by British artist Marc Quinn. :)
Donated by Mr Putra Masagung, this 7 ton (383 cm by 353 cm by 926 cm) bronze cast sculpture which is a depiction of the artist's infant son Lucas, appears to float above the ground. It is one of over 40 artworks nestled among the horticultural splendour of Gardens by the Bay. It is now a prominent landmark to the Gardens' new city gateway.
You can see Planet at the Meadow, near the Colonial Garden. Against the backdrop of the city skyline, the blue sky and white clouds, the baby appears to be floating in the air.
We are experiencing hazy skies over Singapore and a burning smell in the air because of our Indonesia neighbour's forests burning in Sumatra.
I pray for rain during the weekend to wash away the pollution caused by the haze and that some of the withered plants during this traditional dry period could get some much needed moisture.
