Specimen #01131, 8/19/2001
Size: 6 inches across
Composition: Acrylic sphere with 23 karat gold leaf,
14 karat gold filled wire, sterling silver wire, #11 steel
Collection site: TBD
Comments: The acrylic sphere has a magnifying effect,
so even the slightest change in angle makes the image of the
gold leaf underside move in an exaggerated way. It's a little
disconcerting, which is a good thing.
