Sculpture: Artificial Moon

That's no moon! This sculptural piece by Beijing-based artist Wang Yuyang  was constructed an imposing recreation of Earth’s moon from hundreds of compact fluorescent lightbulbs. It stands over 13 feet wide (400cm). The piece is particularly poignant as it was originally put on exhibit in Shanghai, a city where it is often difficult to watch the actual moon moving through the night sky due to light pollution.
