Léviathan Thot is an art installation by the Brazilian artist, Ernesto Neto of 2006.[1]

It was first displayed in Europe at 'le Panthéon', Paris, during an exhibition which lasted from 15 September to 31 December 2006, as part of the 'Festival D'Automne à Paris'.

It was well received during its display, gaining the artist a greater international reputation, as well as earning him the medal of Chevalier de L'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
