Giant Baby Lands in Singapore

If you can look at this sculpture of a giant baby without thinking of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in Ghostbusters, give yourself a pat on the back.

The work, entitled 'Planet', was unveiled last Thursday in Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay national park.

Designed by artist Marc Quin in 2008, the giant white sculpture is made out of painted bronze and steel (not marshmallow) and was inspired by Quinn's baby son.

The towering creation, which is 9m long, appears to float above the ground playing with illusions of weightlessness and suspension in midair.

British born Quinn was the chap behind Alison Lapper, which was first installed on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square in 2005 and recreated for the opening ceremony of the London Paralympics, as well as being the artist who created that portrait of Kate Moss.
