Megalomaniacal Orrery

I've plotted it out, the universe does revolve around ME!

Just the thing for the front yard of my new palatial estate. A statue of me, in all my regal glory, standing proud upon a downsized Earth at the center of my front yard for all the world to see. Surrounded by powered tracks which carry the moon, the sun and all that other unimportant stuff mechanically following their true pre-Copernican course revolving about ME! The sun is actually only lit on one side, the side that faces ME! Stars shine from the outer edges pointing to their true Mecha ME!
