After escaping from the ice-planet Hoth, the rebels Han Solo, Princess Leia, C3PO and R2D2 navigate their spaceship The Millenium Falcon through a perilous asteroid field. Amid pieces of Lego bricks scattered over the gallery floor, the Millenium Falcon slowly starts to take shape. Luke Skywalker, the hero of Star Wars, travels to the planet Dagobah, to be instructed by the Jedi Master Yoda in the ways of the Force (a form of mysticism present in the Star Wars movies, allowing, among other things, telekinesis, telepathy and heightened intuition). The Luke Skywalker toy figure enters the woodpanel passage, walking up the wall towards a larger painting hung at an angle between the wall and the ceiling. The pirate ship was placed underneath the labyrinth in the corner of the wall dividing the outer gallery space from the inner. Soundtrack music from the movie "The Empire Strikes Back" played in the background, depicting the flight of the Millenium Falcon.
