This is how I see the moon in the middle of the night, where only a few days are lacking to the full moon. It is huge and on a cloudless night it dominates against the black sky with its warm light. I decided to oxidize the metal to get the gray-black shades that imitate the sky at night. The structure of the moon was cut with a laser and illuminated with warm light. I painted the surface of the moon with aluminum gilding wax to reflect the surface structure – craters, seas and highlands. The moon is bent inwards which gives the impression of three-dimensionality. This art work is elegant, expressive and eye-catching. It would look good in the lobby, on the mezzanine, where it would be the main decoration in the twilight.
The LED strip and power supply are hidden behind the image. It would be ideal to connect it to the wall power supply, like a wall lamp, but you can also connect a plug-in cable to the wall socket. 230V power supply needed.
