Pick-44 is an interesting sculpture of how the Human nervous system is reflected in the amount devoted to the senses I think.

The Sensory Homonculus. (It was next to the Motor cortex homonculus (proportional space devoted in the motor cortex to control, but the sensory one is more interesting. Even if they did leave out the gargantuan penis+scrotum [which most textbooks do as well])

The rocket on the right is definitely an Ariane 5. Not sure about the one on the left.
