A magical view of earth in the heart of Birmingham

Created from detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface and measuring seven metres in diameter, Gaia invites guests to appreciate the beauty and majesty of our planet on an awe-inspiring scale. The spectacular artwork is 1.8 million times smaller than the Earth, with each centimetre of the sculpture depicting 18km of the Earth’s surface.

The installation is on display in Millennium Point’s impressive Atrium, suspended from above and slowly revolving, giving visitors the chance to view the Earth from every angle as never before. The artwork is also accompanied by a specially created surround sound composition by BAFTA award-winning composer Dan Jones.

If you can’t make the yoga, why not visit us another time to see the spectacular earth sculpture. Gaia is completely free to attend and requires no booking. Simply visit Millennium Point during our opening hours of 8am to 11pm. For more information please click here.
