The sculpture shows a model of the Meissner effect as seen on superconductors.
It shows a three-dimensional field diagram of a superconductor in the Meissner state inside an ideal system; a spherical superconductor below its critical temperature, inside a uniform magnetic field. The superconductor inside the illustrated field is not visible, but indirectly  displayed through the deflection of the field lines.
