Sky Mirror (for Hendrik) is a gift commemorating the museum's twenty-fifth anniversary. Tilburg is the first Dutch city to have a Kapoor sculpture in its public space.

In 2017 De Pont is celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary. To mark this occasion, and in recognition of Kapoor's long-standing relationship with the museum, the British artist has created a sculpture of stainless steel, six meters in height. The work is placed in a water garden specially designed for it by the landscape architect Sophie Walker.  Sky Mirror has been made possible through contributions by the artist, the museum and a joint gift by the city of Tilburg,  private individuals and the companies Van Spaendonck, Interpolis, Rabobank, VolkerWessels and Jacques de Leeuw in Tilburg and of Brabant C.
