The Crawick Multiverse Solstice Festival will be held at the Charles Jencks’ designed venue near Sanquhar from Friday to Sunday, June 26.
It will feature performances, exhibitions, talks by leading professors and various activities.
For kids, there will be a Cosmic Treasure Hunt and play time adventure.
And the organisers promise ‘a spectacular Sunday event’ where Jencks will reveal his latest creation.
The dance of life and death between the sun and Earth is at the heart of the new mosaic, which lies in the centre of a huge amphitheatre
It reflects Jencks’ deep fascination with the way the cosmos works.
He said: “For Earth there is no greater agency than the sun, giving us warmth and much else besides.
“But its solar wind can be a killer and the occasional Solar Flare could rip through our atmosphere destroying it instantly, if it weren’t for our magnetic shield.
“Solar flares plus Earth shield equals visual beauty. The sun is less a warrior god and more a tender woman who pulls the earth along in warming, changing wave-forms.”
