CELESTIAL VISION is the theme of this sculpture.

One of several striking dust pillars of the Eagle Nebula has been described as a gigantic alien fairy, and has been named “The Fairy of the Eagle Nebula”.

The famous photograph of the cloud was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. Using that photograph, Jon has sculpted the Fairy, fully emerged from the dust pillar, holding a telescope in her hands, showing her astronomical roots.
