The inspiration for this piece comes from the truly amazing, recent, discovery that large groups galaxies in our universe being pulled at high speed (greater than 3 million kilometres per hour) towards a region of sky between the constellations of Centaurus and Vela. This movement, named ‘Dark Flow’, is thought to be caused by some unknown massive structures that lie outside of the observable universe (i.e. further than 42 billion light years away), and has led to speculation that these structures may be part of a different universe, much larger than the one we know, and with a completely different form.

This box was specially made for a charity auction.
