Mini Mars

Created from NASA’s topological data, this Mini Mars artwork has been made to show all the mountains, valleys and craters. CNC cut in sections and then assembled, the imagery of Mars courtesy of NASA’s MRO mission has then been painstakingly hand painted onto its surface.

The artwork is 6.8million times smaller than the actual planet and is a commission for the permanent collection of new museum in London. See Luke’s far larger touring sculpture of Mars.

Mini Mars was made in collaboration with The Factory of Knowle West Media Centre in Bristol.
