The orb statue is a gimmick that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a a mystical statue that appears exclusively in the Action Stage End of the World where it is used to temporarily remove the Eyes of Solaris.
The orb statue is a presented as a mystical bust. It has a large green orb on the bottom and has an equally large eagle ornament made of rock on top of it with its wings spread out. These statues have the ability to stabilize the fabric of reality by reducing Solaris' ability to alter it.
In gameplay, the orb statues can temporarily banish the eyes of Solaris. When touching the orb statue, it will light up and the surrounding eyes of Solaris will disappear for several seconds, before reappearing. However, each orb can be touched for as many times as needed. The orb statues only appear in End of the World because it is only there the eyes of Solaris are encountered.
