Perched atop the SeaPlex on deck 15, the piece depicts a mother panda and her cub, reaching out to one another.

The two pandas were designed by a U.K.-based artist Jo Smith and intended to bestow peace and prosperity on all who interact with them.

Mama and Baby together weigh approximately six-and-a-half tons. Mama is 10 meters high, or approximately 33 feet, from the deck to the top of the sculpture, while Baby is approximately three meters, or ten feet tall.
