See Luke Jerram’s spectacular artwork Gaia: a detailed sculpture of Earth measuring seven metres in diameter.

We have gazed up at the Moon for millennia, but the first time humankind got to see the Earth in its entirety—as a ‘Blue Marble’ floating in space—was in 1972 with NASA’s Apollo 17 mission. Our perception and understanding of our planet changed forever. Hanging in the black emptiness of space, the Earth seems isolated, precious and fragile.

Gaia, a touring artwork by Luke Jerram, is a stunning replica of our planet, created using 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface. The sculpture provides an incredible opportunity to view Earth as it might be seen from space, floating in three dimensions.
