Derby, United Kingdom, September 4, 2008--A giant sculpture of a seven-month-old baby by British artist Marc Quinn is displayed on the grounds at Chatsworth House in the Derbyshire countryside.

The bronze sculpture painted a brilliant white is part of the Sotheby's auction house's "Beyond Limits" exhibition of modern and contemporary pieces, which runs through November 2.

In years past, the exhibition has hosted works from Damien Hirst, Antony Gormley, Salvador Dali, and Henry Moore, making it an eagerly awaited show.
