With each of these sculptures, Javid Jah explores the symbolic meanings of the visible planets

 

He combines the astronomical observations of the planets, such as the pattern of their orbital period around the Earth (the Sun's orbit divides our sky into 12 segments via four seasons, for example) with the alchemical approach to the planet
