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 scalpel blades.

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.
